Now things get real, as there were only three films that got nominated in reality, but what if two more could have joined Paramount/Nick's Jimmy Neutron(the underdog), Disney/Pixar's Monsters Inc.(the one that got an A+ on Cinemascore), and DreamWorks' Shrek(the eventual winner), unfortunately Disney's Atlantis wasn't on the shortlist.

2003

Would have joined Brother Bear, Finding Nemo, and The Triplets of Belleville.


Technically TCR wasn't on the shortlist, and wasn't available on DVD until 2005, but I added it in anyways since it premiered in LA in May of 2003, and LTBIA was 75% animated, despite being a live action/animated hybrid and was on the shortlist.

2006

There was going to five films going up for the prize, but that one stinker of a movie called Arthur and the Invisibles got disqualified for the prize, as the Academy went from having five films going for the win to just three, and these two could have joined Lightning McQueen, Mumble, and the kids from Monster House.

Load more items (55 more in this list)

I know the category was introduced in 2002, but what if it could have been introduced in the 71st Oscars in 1999, and would have always feature a limit of five films. This might be a controsival list, so please don't get upset if films that did get nominated in reality like Brave or Ferdinand aren't on there.
