This year, again, AWN is the only place in the world where you can go to
see clips of all the animation nominees. Each nominee is featured with a
20-30 second Quicktime clip, a brief summary of the film, pictures and the
director's thoughts. Plus, you can vote for which one you think will be the
big winner on awards night. We will announce our winner the day of the
Oscars and see if the knowledgeable readership of AWN is right on target.
Last year we were - an overwhelming number of AWN visitors chose the
ultimately victorious "Geri's Game." See the creme de la creme and then
express yourself and cast a vote!
