    Gosh, I’m surprised by the changes. This has been such a weak year for animation. The only film that has any real Oscar legitimacy so far this year appears to be Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises. I must say that I hadn’t heard of Ernest & Celestine before and it sounds absolutely fascinating. I also still have a little hope for Frozen.

    It does still appear that the award can be cancelled if there aren’t very many good films in a year (or give a special award if there is only one good film). I’m curious how close this year will get to that cutoff (Section IV part B):

    At least eight eligible animated features must have been theatrically released in Los Angeles County within the calendar year for this category to be activated.

    There are barely 3 decent ones this year, forgo.

    This is a major improvement imo. Of course, it remains to be seen over the course of some years, but I dont believe a bigger voting body with more flexibility is going to by-pass the smaller, art house animation(s).

    I can’t find a thread for Frozen, so: soundtrack listing released. 8 songs.
    An opening cast song, a closing cast song featuring Maia Wilson who may or may not be in the film.
    Kristen has a song with two ladies not listed on IMDB in the cast, so dunno what’s up with that.
    She has a duet with a prince who I’m assuming is a love interest, but Jonathan Groff who I’m assuming is the main love interest gets a solo.
    She has a duet with Idina Menzel, who also gets a solo.
    And Josh Gad gets a solo as the comic relief sidekick, a snowman. Who I’m guessing becomes a real boy? 

    I love Bell, Menzel, and Groff’s voices, so I’m quite excited. Frozen/The Wind Rises have been in my T5 most anticipated the whole year. Won’t take great reviews to put them at the top of the animated heap critically, though I do hope they’re great.
