To be specific, two movies including “Toy Story 3” and “Shrek Forever After” are best taken into consideration by the Academy, while three other films followed are “How to Train Your Dragon”, “Despicable Me“, as well as newly-launched “Megamind”. Ranked after such above movies are seen as “Alpha and Omega”, “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore”, “Idiots and Angels”, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole”, “My Dog Tulip” and “Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue”.


On the other hand, the final four movies including “Tangled”, “The Illusionist”, “The Dreams of Jinsha” and “Summer Wars” among the academy’s 15 accepted films have to be shown at a Los Angeles theater by December 31st to be certified for this upcoming annual awards event.
