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.

Brilliant, bold, boisterous, brave, and beautiful. That's the 'Bite. Snakebite that is. He's been with us since the earliest days of the AnimationNation Movement. In fact, I met him on April 1, 1999 at The Great Alliance - the very first industry get together we organized in an effort to unify the artists of the Los Angeles animation industry / community. Ever since we've been closest of friends and brothers in arms.

Snakebite walks the talk. Staunchly independent, his professional life is based upon the principles he embraces. Cooperation, self reliance, creative strength, the light of truth. He is an outstanding talent, one of the pioneer digital colorization artists in the comic book industry. He's worked in animation on award winning shows and cutting edge productions. Currently he is proprietor and partner at Petra Gallerie, an avaunt-gard art experience in Beverly Hills, California. A great artist and a genius at Photoshop, here's a look  at his personal website and his latest demo reel below. The Forum topic can be found here.
