In this series of blog posts, we’ll be sharing the observations of our Entertainment Reporter, Kristyn Burtt, with you between now and the Oscars. We’ll be covering the Oscars from set up to day of at the Kodak Theatre and will be on the red carpet talking to celebrities on the day of the event as well.
Today, we’re looking at Animated, Foreign and Documentary features that are up for the Oscar – and the controversy that is being talked about this year as it relates to each category and or film. Let us know your thoughts by posting here on our blog.

- “Chico & Rita” Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal
- “Kung Fu Panda 2″ Jennifer Yuh Nelson
- “Puss in Boots” Chris Miller

We were at the Annie Awards last week and “Rango” won best picture – not to jinx the outcome of the Oscars but the Annie Awards winners usually find themselves holding an Oscar as well.
