The five films competing for the Oscar are Disney's Frozen, DreamWorks Animations' The Croods, Universal's Despicable Me 2, Studio Ghibli's The Wind Rises and La Parti Productions' Ernest & Celestine.

Frozen could well be seen as a frontrunner following its Golden Globe win, but the other nominees have also picked up awards in the run up to the Oscars.

Despicable Me 2 won a People's Choice Award for Favourite Family Movie, The Wind Rises picked up the Best Animated Feature Award from the New York Film Critics Circle while Ernest & Celestine won the Cesar Award (French equivalent of the Oscars) for Best Animated Film.
