No Oscar for Howl's Moving Castle

While I haven’t had the chance to see it yet, I was kind of hoping Howl’s Moving Castle would win best animated picture because, I think, anime, whether in movie or series form, needs all the good publicity that it can get. It’s good that it was nominated, but it’d been better had it won.

Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit won the Best Animated Feature award. Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride was the only other film nominated for the category.
