21 animated features have made it to the Oscar shortlist for best animated feature. Since over 16 films were submitted, a maximum of 5 films can be nominated. However, of these 21 animated features—that range from major animated features such as Wreck-It Ralph to independent animated films like Zarafa—only 2 of these 21 films were directed by women.
And on top of that tiny number, both of these films were co-directed by men. The final five Oscar nominees will be announced on January 10.
Here are the two women co-directed animated films on the shortlist:
Brave – Co-directed by Brenda Chapman and Mark Andrews
Secret of the Wings – Co-directed by Peggy Holmes and Bradley Raymond
