    Primary goal: put together reasonably-sized articles on the last five nominees for the Best Animated Feature Oscar.
    Secondary goals: put together articles on the studios and directors behind those films, and provide the same coverage of the recent Best Animated Short nominees.
    Long-term goal: do the same for all the films that have won the two Oscars in the past, along with their directors and studios.

    Anyone want to handle WALL-E?

    I haven't seen the film yet, and I just know that if I do enough research into it the ending's going to get spoiled somewhere down the line (and I've heard it's a doozy).

    Bolt and Kung Fu Panda are nearing completion, so once WALL-E's out the door that'll be the first part of this project done.

    I'll take on Wall-E. I know it well, and getting good info on it won't be to hard. I'll try having an article up that is at "done" quality by Friday or Saturday.

    One down, two to go. Well, until the next batch of Oscar noms is announced, anyway.

    My copy of Wall-E is in the post...

    Okay, the next five noms are out (since the Bolt article still hasn't been finished, that makes six in all).

    Anyone want to pick a film? I think I'll be running with Coraline.

    I could do The Princess and the Frog to start. I can stream Bolt off of Netflix, so I was planning to fill that in the rest of the way. I've been meaning to see it anyhow.

    I'll take on Secret of Kells as well - I've just found out that the DVD is already available in R2-land, and I've ordered a copy myself. Any takers for Up and Mr. Fox?

    I'm keeping the goal of getting as much info on these films as mainstream Wiki, and it's a relief to see that none of these articles will be as much of an undertaking as WALL-E's. Looking at Wikipedia, Up has a noticibly shorter article than the last Pixar number, Princess and the Frog is even slimmer, and the other three should be pushovers to match up to.

    Took me a while but Secret of Kells is done. I'll take Mr. Fox next - anyone interested in Frog and Up?
