Future Animated Film Oscars To Be Shared by Producers

Jon Weisman

Future recipients of the Oscar for animated feature film will include one producer, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Monday.

A new tweak to the Oscar rules by the Acad’s Board of Governors reiterated that there would typically be two people honored for each animated feature Oscar, but specified that one would be a producer, alongside the director “and/or key creative individual.”

In the case of a two-person team with shared and equal director credit, the Academy said a third statuette may be awarded.

The most recent animated film Oscar went to “Brave” and its two directors, Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman.
