The Oscar nominations for this year were announced today. Of course the one film we are interested in knowing about is The Boxtrolls. So the first thing I did was look at the nominations for Best Animated Movie and sure enough it was there!
I don't know how optimistic I am that it will get the Oscar because it seems like it's really hard to go up against the Disney/Pixar machine. But we are really happy it got nominated.
And we're really happy since our son, Andy, was one of the animators!
Here is a link to the complete list for this year:
