The Secret of Kells up for Best Animated Feature

I reported earlier that Up was nominated for Best Picture – something rarely done for an animated film. I briefly mentioned it was also nominated in the Animated Feature Film category. What I did not mentioned was the other contenders which include: Coraline, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Princess and the Frog and The Secret of Kells. Most of these I have seen, but The Secret of Kells was an out-of-nowhere title. I found the trailer on collider.com. I can’t speak to the writing or plot, but I am in love with the art. Regardless of how it fairs in the Oscars, I’ll rent the movie just for the artistic work.

Check it out.

KELLS is a rather incredible film, visually speaking. The third Act is a little soft, but altogether the quality of storyboarding is on a whole new level.
