Empire for consideration in the first ever Best Animated
Feature Academy Award category.
New York Times has revealed that Disney's strategy in
not submitting Atlantis: The Lost Empire for Best
Animated Feature Oscar consideration is to put its entire
effort behind Monsters, Inc. It is expected that

nominations had been Shrek, Monsters, Inc., and
Atlantis as Disney represents both Monsters,
Inc. and Atlantis. By leaving Atlantis
out of the equation, Disney hopes to increase the chances
of Monsters, Inc. winning the award.
