This is the first time since 2004 in which two Dreamworks movies were nominated for Best Animated Feature. This film, and fellow 2011 release Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) were nominated. In 2004, Shrek 2 (2004) and Shark Tale were nominated. All these films didn't win however. In 2004, both nominees lost to The Incredibles (2004) and in 2011, both nominees lost to Rango (2011).

real story to carry it - it will be enjoyable for kids, so shouldn't be
avoided, but it will hardly be remembered in a few years time.
