"Arthur and the Invisibles" has lost the chance to compete for a slot in the category.

Which animated flicks to come out as the finalists in Oscar's Best Animated Feature category still have to be determined yet, but one thing is for sure: "Arthur and the Invisibles" won't be one the nominees.

Previously included in the list of sixteen contenders vying for the slot, the MGM/Weinstein release has sadly been dropped from consideration by AMPAS, the Academy spokesperson Leslie Unger announced on Sunday, January 7, following the earlier report concerning the matter in the AMPAS Press Release.

"I can confirm that that movie is ineligible for animated feature consideration. I believe it did not make the proportional requirement," so she stated. "As a result, we will have a slate of three nominees in that category."

The rest fifteen films, which include box office hits "Cars," "Ice Age: The Meltdown", "Happy Feet", and "Over the Hedge", are still eligible for competition up to January 23, during which the Academy will announce those worthy to compete in the nomination along with other award nominees.
