We have featured this competition at:

The highly-anticipated Oscar nominations for 2010 have finally been announced. Four of the ten nominations for Best Picture are already (or imminently) available to watch on Blu-ray, equipped with plenty of special features for delving into the reasons these films have received critical acclaim.

Both The Hurt Locker and Up (released in Europe this month) have special behind the scenes footage presented in high definition. In Up for example, one of the many short documentaries shows how the Pixar team developed their 78-year old action hero and the efforts they went through to accurately convey his moves. It also contains BD-live feature The Global Guardian Badge Game, which gives kids and families a chance to brush up on their geography skills.

On the Inglourious Basterds Blu-ray, a roundtable discussion with director Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt, and film critic Elvis Mitchell is worth a watch, for additional understanding of the films’ premise.  Finally, the District 9 Blu-ray provides the option to watch the film with BD-Live features MovieIQ and Cinechat, as well as including several behind the scenes documentaries (all in HD).

All in all, the special features on these Oscar nominated Blu-ray Discs will ensure you are fully equipped with all the information to choose which you think is most deserving of the top prize. The question is, will your favourite win?

    My favouite is 101 dalmations. It’s an all time classic. Unfortunately my four year old daughter is scared of Cruella, so she won’t join me in watching it..I’m hoping it’s a phase that will soon pass so we can cuddle up and watch it together.

    I’m @pigtails21 on twitter..

    My fave animated film is The Simpson’s Movie, very funny

  19. 21 Ross Fraser April 18, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    I am very romantic so when i saw UP for the first time I loved it espcially what he does for love, who said romance is dead. So although there are a lot of animated films I adore UP has a very special place in my heart and my wife even says that Carl Fredricksen reminds her of me.

    One of my favourites is Small Soldiers. I never tire of seeing that movie. It is computer animated and it has such an awesome soundtrack. I also thoroughly enhoyed both Toy Stories and Monster’s Inc.

  50. 55 Annie Taylor April 16, 2010 at 3:10 pm

    Shrek (the first one).

    Although I can’t look at Donkey now without thinking of Guy Secretan from the TV series Green Wing (if you’re a fan you’ll know what I mean) 🙂

  51. 56 Lorraine Johnson April 16, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    My favourite animated film is Finding Nemo. Apart from it being a fantastic familly film, it was really the first proper movie that I was able to sit down and watch with my son. It was the first film he was able to sit and enjoy whilst understanding it (age 3 at the time lol!)

  52. 57 Celia Hooker April 16, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Cinderella brings back happy memories. I had to watch it every day with my daughter when she was younger

  53. 58 Denise S April 16, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    Finding Nemo so cute looked at my own fishtank in a new light after that.

  54. 59 Linda April 16, 2010 at 2:43 pm

  58. 63 Susan Nisar April 16, 2010 at 12:34 pm

  65. 70 Gerry April 15, 2010 at 10:22 am

  66. 71 Phil D April 15, 2010 at 8:29 am

    Toy Story 2 has to be the best all time animated film for me. It had all the humour of the first, and I quite fancy Jessie, the yodelling cowgirl, too.

    I’ve tweeted too – @philibaldi

  67. 72 susan langton April 15, 2010 at 8:25 am

    My favorite animated film has to be LADY AND THE TRAMP! What a classic romantic love story between two dogs…The slurping of the spaghetti is a heart stopper!

  68. 73 Sarah L April 14, 2010 at 11:44 pm

  85. 90 Jack April 13, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    My favourite animated film of all time is Toy Story. It’s actually made by the same people as up and not only is it my favourite animated movie, but probably my overall favourite movie too! I just love all the characters, with my favourite being Mr Potato Head of course.

    I’m also quite looking forward to Toy Story 3 which I hear is being released soon. Fingers crossed it is as great as the first two.

    By the way, retweeted the message here: http://twitter.com/Enzo3000/status/12117294043

  86. 91 Jade Clancy April 13, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    My fave animated film is a toss up between He-Man & She-Ra – The Secret of the Sword, Jem The Movie, and Disneys Alice In Wonderland, all of them just remind me of being a kid 🙂

    RT’d as @Girlyougotstyle on Twitter

    Thanks!

  87. 92 Steven Taylor April 13, 2010 at 6:58 pm

  90. 95 Heather Shaw April 13, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    Mine must be toy story. Is it wrong that i fancy buzz and woody? :s

  91. 96 Frances Heaton April 13, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    My favourite is definitely BAMBI. Sad, emotional, colourful and funny – this movie has stood the test of time!

  92. 97 Lisa Stewart April 13, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    I know you will think I’m just saying this, but Up is definitely a strong contender! I cried and laughed so much – saw it three times at the cinema.
    Before Up came out….I’m a big Disney freak, so it’s hard to choose just one favourite Disney film! If forced I would say Hercules – controversial choice maybe but I loved greek myths as a kid and was nuts about this film. The gospel soundtrack is amazing as well.

  93. 98 C Hui April 13, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    Would say my fav would be Wall-E.

  94. 99 Martine April 13, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    Bambi is still my favourite.
    @halkerstone

  95. 100 Gavin April 13, 2010 at 11:55 am

    Got to say, I still love Ghost In The Shell and Akira, but they’re a bit way out there for most people.
    Animal Farm if you want a classic. Watership Down is just too depressing.
    Monsters Inc is my fav from modern animation.

  96. 101 sassyele April 13, 2010 at 11:45 am

    My fave is Lady and the Tramp – i saw this at the pictures when i was a young ‘un and loved it!! Also one of the first movies i cried at! lol
    More recently though…Shark Tale – this had me in hysterics!!

  97. 102 Katie mackenzie April 13, 2010 at 11:44 am
