Sure, Finding Nemo is gonna win the 'best animation' category but as the foot-tappin' Triplets de Belleville song in the Belleville Rendezvous cartoon has also been nominated for 'best song', who knows what will happen at the Oscar ceremony in February. The nominees were announced minutes ago, at 5.30am Los Angeles time...

Tour de France ‘toon gets two Oscar nominations

Of the 12 animated features that could have been nominated today, Belleville was one of the three that won through.


The other two were Brother Bear and Finding Nemo.

Academy members selected the nominees in their respective branches, with the exception of the Animated Feature and Foreign Language Film categories, where nominations were selected by vote of screening committees. All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees. The secret ballots were mailed to 5,803 members in late December and were returned directly to PricewaterhouseCoopers, the international accounting firm, for tabulation.

Official screenings of all pictures with a nomination will begin this weekend for members at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theatre. Screenings in special categories also will be held in the Academy’s Linwood Dunn Theatre in Hollywood and in London, New York and San Francisco.

On Sunday, Belleville Rendezvous – also known as Triplets de Belleville – won the BBC Four World Cinema Award.
