There Will Be Five Nominated Animated Films This Year for Oscars

There were a record number of animated films submitted for consideration for this year's Oscars - 20!
The 20 submitted features are:
“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel”
“Astro Boy”
“Battle for Terra”
“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”
“Disney's A Christmas Carol”
“The Dolphin – Story of a Dreamer”
“Fantastic Mr. Fox”
“Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs”
“Mary and Max”
“The Missing Lynx”
“Monsters vs. Aliens”
“Planet 51”
“The Princess and the Frog”
“The Secret of Kells”
“Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure”
“A Town Called Panic”

I've bolded the pictures that I think really have a shot, although I'm not familiar with all of the films listed.  But Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Squeakuel?  What the heck are they smoking?  Thanks for submitting, though, as this is such a strong year for animation and there needed to be a minimum of 16 films submitted to allow for 5 nominations.  It would have been criminal this year to whittle the list down to only three.
