Frozen II, Toy Story 4 among 32 films submitted for Best Animated Feature Oscar
Addams Family, Weathering with You, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World also submitted to the Academy.
The 2020 Oscar race is shaping up to be an animated affair.
Other contenders vying for the final five nomination slots include Abominable, The Angry Birds Movie 2, Netflix’s first original animated title Klaus, The Secret Life of Pets 2, and Weathering With You, the animated film that will represent Japan in the Best International Feature race as well.
Films submitted in the Animated Feature Film category also qualify for other categories, including Best Picture. Several of the films included in the Academy’s 32-strong list have yet to complete their required week-long qualification runs in Los Angeles, and must do so before moving on to the next round of voting.
Nominees will be determined by a vote from members of the Short Films and Feature Animation branches, while members outside those branches are invited to opt into the process, though they must meet a minimum viewing requirement to be eligible.
Nominations for the 2020 Oscars will be announced on Monday, Jan. 13, and the ceremony airs Sunday, Feb. 9 on ABC.
