Who might get an animated Oscar

At the Oscars, the battle for best animated feature film is almost as hotly contested as those for the best live action film – and the results almost as eagerly awaited. 
 
Chico & Rita is a moving love story set in Cuba. Frenando Trueba, the director said: “We always wanted the characters to be real. Write the script as if it is a live action movie. Don’t think about animation, think about people and about characters.”

Po’s adventures continue in Kung Fu Panda 2. It is voiced by Jack Black. Jennifer Yuh Nelson, the director, said: “Truly the story is the number one thing because unless it’s compelling and it draws you in, then why watch it? You don’t care. So that’s good story, good characters, and that’s the core of it.”
