Early this morning host Seth McFarlane and the world's favorite actress Emma Stone announced the 2013 Academy Award nominations. There were quite a few shockers - mostly the multiple nods for "Beasts of the Southern Wild" and "Amour" in all major categories as well as the snubbing of Question Tarantino and Kathyrn Bigelow in the best director category and P.T. Anderson's "The Master's" shut out of Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay categories. A pleasant surprise came in the form of the inclusion of one of this site's favorite films of the year on the list of Best Animated Feature Films, "ParaNorman." Admittedly, "Wreck-It Ralph" is the movie to beat, but it's nice to see the Academy honor the charming loveletter to horror that is "Norman."

Here's the full list of Animated Features:

Look out, Adult Swim -- Fox has their own lineup of  "edgy" animated comedies. No, not the "Family Guy" stuff. The key word, as found in their press release, is "Alternative."

As of July 27, Fox will add a second "Animation Domination" late-night schedule on Saturday, featuring cartoons like "Axe Cop" (based on the cult Dark Horse comic book series) and "High School USA" by "Community" alum Dino Stamatopoulos. Dubbed "Animation Domination High-Def," the network described the initiative as follows: Read More...

"The Mystical Laws" has all of the hallmarks of being a vanity project with the added bonus that its producer/writer is a self-professed living Buddha (no, really). This bizarre near-future story of Westward expansion of a evil, Chinese-based empire, aliens, and space gods flits back and forth between sci-fi and philosophy (with a wee bit of nationalism thrown in). Also, there are carnivorous lizard men, but that comes later in "The Mystical Laws'" bloated, bizarre two hours running time.

"The Croods." "Planes." "Despicable Me 2." All three animated features are coming out this year and we won't be writing about them below. Not because we think they'll be bad or anything, but they just don't get our blood pumping like some of the under-the-radar or direct-to-DVD features on the way this year. It's a year where we've got a pair of animated Batman films, more anime Iron Man, the return of Detective Conan, and a pair of new movies from Studio Ghibli.

After the jump, take a look at some of the animated films of 2013 that have got us pretty Geeked.
