Will Wall-E win an Oscar?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, better known to many of us as The Academy, has announced the 14 submitted films for the Best Animated Feature Award that will be handed out next February. Among the finalist are some of the usual suspects such as Pixar’s WALL-E and Dreamworks’ Kung Fu Panda as well as some long shots, including The Weinstein Co.’s Igor and Summit Entertainment’s Fly Me to the Moon.

Check out the complete list below:

  • Bolt
  • Delgo
  • Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!
  • Dragon Hunters
  • Fly Me to the Moon
  • Igor
  • Kung Fu Panda
  • Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
  • $9.99
  • The Sky Crawlers
  • Sword of the Stranger
  • The Tale of Despereaux
  • WALL-E
  • Waltz with Bashir

At this point these are just the submitted films from the studios. The list of finalists will be announced sometime in late December/early January, so we have some time to stew over this list. And for those wondering about WALL-E’s Best Picture chances, check out this official rule: “Films submitted in the Animated Feature Film category also may qualify for Academy Awards in other categories, including Best Picture, provided they meet the requirements for those categories.”

But if you had to choose right now, which film would you pick as the Best Animated Feature of 2008?
