Alvin and the Chipmunks Kicked Out of 2008 Oscar Consideration


The action/animation hybrid has been deemed by AMPAS to not qualify as a possible contender for the Best Animated Feature slot.

Merging live-action shots with CGI animation, the 20th Century Fox's "Alvin and the Chipmunks" has to take its leave from the road to become final contenders of Oscar's 2008 Best Animated Feature.

Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has come up to a conclusion to drop the movie from the lineup of animated titles considered to be the nominees in the category. Pic is said to not qualified for the rule which states "animation must figure in no less than 75 percent of the picture's running time."

With this decision, there are only eleven features now that are vying for the nomination slots, including the recently-released "Beowulf." The Robert Zemeckis-directed was originally thought to may not qualify for the competition, but after concluding that motion capture technique used is counted as animation, the Academy's animated feature screening committee finally allowed the flick to go for a nod.
