21 films have officially been submitted for consideration for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards. That number is significant because in a year with 16 or more eligible titles, there will be five nominees instead of three.

The entered films include expected titles like Pixar's "Brave," to date 2012's highest grossing animated film in the US with more than $235 million in domestic tickets sales. Also in the running are "Frankenweenie," "Wreck-It Ralph," "Rise of the Guardians," and "ParaNorman."

Also in the running are an international assortment in various styles, including Japan's anime film "The Mystical Laws," India's "Hey Krishna," and the UK's stop-motion "The Pirates: Band of Misfits," from directors Peter Lord and Jeff Newitt; Lord has two previous Oscar nominations for Best Animated Short.

Some of the films submitted have not yet had their requisite qualifying run in Los Angeles, which is required in order to be considered for Oscar.
