It seems hard to believe that it’s time for the 2008 Oscar submissions, already, but apparently it is. Stranger still is of course the fact that every year the submissions come in and feature several movies slated to be holiday blockbusters—and, therefore, haven’t actually debuted, yet.
Every year this annoys me, and yet, they don’t stop doing it. I should write someone a stern letter, or something. Hmph.
Nevertheless, here are the 2008 Oscar nominees for best animated feature:
Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!
Fly Me to the Moon
Kung Fu Panda
Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
The Sky Crawlers
Sword of the Stranger
The Tale of Despereaux
Waltz with Bashir
Looking at that list really has me ready for some great films in the next two months. Although if The Tale of Despereaux isn’t amazing I’m going to have to write several stern letters. It’s such a great book—I hope it’ll be a fabulous film.
In other movie news, I’m sure everyone who’s ever used the phrase “Wax on, wax off” will be pleased to know that a Karate Kid remake is in the works (with Will Smith’s kid in the title role). I wonder who they’ll have play Mr. Miyagi. It’d be too much to hope for Jackie Chan, right…?
