We're more than excited to report that "Chico & Rita" has been nominated for Best Animated Feature for the upcoming 2011 Academy Awards!

This is a traditionally animated film that's been promoted on AN since we got wind of it, thanks to one of our members Hans Christian Jehger who goes by hcjehg on the Forums. Hans is affiliated with HoBSoft, the production system used to create Chico and Rita. Here's the Forum topic he started when he brought the good news about the film's nomination to our attention. I thought I'd include the following video for the homepage entry honoring this terrific development. It's the official announcement of the major Oscar nominees. You can catch the Animated Feature category at 3:30 of the timeline. I've also included the trailer for the film.

A complete list of all the animation category nominees can be found here, including Shorts and Visual Effects.

Congratulations to all the nominees from everyone at AnimationNation!
