Here are the 14 other movies that will lose Best Animated Feature to Toy Story 3

Given that it was the year’s top-grossing film, became the only animated movie in history to surpass the $1 billion mark, and has already been bandied about as a possible Best Picture contender, Toy Story 3 would seem like a lock as this year’s Best Animated Feature come Oscar time, no? But here are its cautiously optimistic contenders anyway—15 in all, which is just one short of the minimum needed to have a five-nominee category, meaning there will only be two losers when Toy Story 3 walks away with the award. Perhaps were it any other year, Cats & Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore
