Twenty-one features have been submitted for consideration in the Animated Feature Film category for the 85th Academy Awards. This means that there will likely be five nominations announced on January 10, although several films listed below have not yet had their required Los Angeles qualifying runs, the Academy points out. Presumably they will fulfill all the requirements. Films submitted in the Animated Feature Film category may also qualify for Academy Awards in other categories, including Best Picture, but I doubt that any of these will chase that down. I bold the five front-runners for Oscar noms.
