Could this be an award season with no Pixar Oscar nominee? In a weak year for top animated features, enough have been officially submitted to the Academy for Oscar consideration to likely make a race with five nominees, even though several of the films have yet to qualify via a required Los Angeles run.

At 3D Stereo MEDIA 2011, the late Ray Zone said that 2D cinema was a historical mistake, and that movies should never have been 2D in the first place! Fortunately, several bright people have rushed to the bedside of the flat patients to insufflate new life to them. Does it take a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon to do this? Definitely!
