LOS ANGELES — "Brave," ''Wreck-It Ralph" and "Rise of the Guardians" are among the animated features angling for an Oscar nomination.

The motion picture academy said Friday that 21 films have been submitted for consideration in the Academy Awards' animated feature category.

"Dr. Seuss' The Lorax," ''Frankenweenie," ''Ice Age Continental Drift" and "ParaNorman" are among the high-profile movies vying for one of five nominations. Other contenders include France's "The Rabbi's Cat" and Japan's "From Up on Poppy Hill."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences says several of the films listed have not yet had their required Los Angeles qualifying runs.

"Rango" won the prize earlier this year after 18 films were in nomination contention.

The 85th annual Academy Awards are set for Feb. 24, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
