Persepolis up for Best Animated Feature

After being passed over for consideration in the Foreign Language category, a lot of us didn’t have much hope for Persepolis‘ Oscar chances. I am delighted with its nomination in the Animated Feature category — it’s where it belongs and gives me hope that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences may realize that animation can do more than just be for kids (although that’s been pretty slow going).

I know it will lose to Ratatouille, though.

More thoughts on Persepolis — both the book and the movie — are coming (the movie finally opens here this weekend).
