NY Film Critics Circle Names Waking Life Best Animated Feature

(by The New York City Critics Circle has named Waking Life the "Best Animated Film of the Year" adding more fuel to the controversy surrounding Waking Life's acceptance as an animated movie for the upcoming Academy Awards and the real chance that it could dethrone both Shrek and Monsters, Inc.

The New York City Critics Circle didn't defend its reasoning for selecting Waking Life over Shrek and Monsters, Inc. Here's what it does say, however:

"The Circle's awards are often viewed as harbingers of the Oscar nominations, which are announced each February. The Circle's awards are also viewed -- perhaps more accurately -- as a principled alternative to the Oscars, honoring esthetic merit in a forum that is immune to commercial and political pressures."

The group named Mulholland Drive as "Best Picture".
