Fifteen features have been accepted for consideration in the Animated Feature Film category for the 83rd Academy Awards. That's one short of the 16 necessary for 5 films to be nominated, meaning this year's Oscars will feature only 3 nominees in the category.

The 15 features in contention are:

"Alpha and Omega"
"Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore"
"Despicable Me"
"The Dreams of Jinsha"
"How to Train Your Dragon"
"Idiots and Angels"
"The Illusionist"
"Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole"
"Megamind"
"My Dog Tulip"
"Shrek Forever After"
"Summer Wars"
"Tangled"
"Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue"
"Toy Story 3"

Notable is that "The Dreams of Jinsha," "The Illusionist," "Summer Wars" and "Tangled" have not yet had their required Los Angeles qualifying run, but at this point are expected to do so. The 83rd Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
