Over the Hedge doesn't have a prayer now...nor does A Scanner Darkly.
The animated film catagory for the Academy Awards allows 5 nominees like the majority of awards in it's program...as long as 16 films are eligible in the animation catagory.
Well this year has been full of animation...Curious George, Barnyard, Everyone's Hero, etc.
Yet the tally just dropped to 15 when the film Arthur and the Invisibles (pictured right) was ruled inelligible as less than 75% of the film is animated.
It would appear now that the 3 pictures that will get Best Animated film nominations will be Cars, Happy Feet, and Monster House.
(Flushed Away could jump in and steal a spot from Monster House but I doubt it)
