Academy Award for Best Animated Feature

The Academy Awards are the oldest awards given to achievements in film; the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature was given the first time for the 2001 film year.
The award is only given if there are at least 8 animated feature films (with a theatrical release in Los Angeles). If there are 16 or more films submitted for the category, the winner will be voted from a shortlist of 5 films, otherwise there will only be 3 films on the shortlist.
People in the animation industry and fans expressed hope that the prestige from this award and the resulting boost to the box office will encourage the increased production of animated features.
