The nominees for Best Animated Feature Film are "Big Hero 6," "The Boxtrolls," "Song of the Sea," "The Tale of the Princess Kaguya," and "How to Train Your Dragon 2," which has been a monster at the box office.

Dragon 2 takes place five years after Dragon 1. Hiccup meets his long-lost mother and fights off Drago Bludvist, a madman who wants to conquer the world. The producer of both Dragons, Bonnie Arnold joined us in the corner booth at Musso and Frank. If the picture wins, she'd share the Oscar with director Dean Deblois and the DreamWorks team.
