  1. 2001 – Shrek (lost to Moulin Rouge!)
  2. 2004 – The Incredibles (lost to The Aviator)

After the inception of the Best Animated Motion Picture award, animated films can still be nominated for Best Theatrical Motion Picture. Two animated films were nominated since 2005:

  2. 2010 – Toy Story 3 (lost to The King's Speech)

Notes

  • Nine out of thirteen PGA-winning animated films won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
  • Two PGA-winning animated films were not nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature: The Adventures of Tintin (2011) and The Lego Movie (2014). The Adventures of Tintin was not nominated as it was ineligible by using motion capture as its technique; the Academy rules do not consider motion capture as an animation technique.[12]
  • 2008 is the only year when the nominees and eventual winner matched correctly.
