At this past year's Academy Awards, the nominations for Best Animated Feature were of well-known features...except for one. This year's mystery nomination belonged to Tomm Moore's directorial debut The Secret of Kells, which may or may not have been the reason why Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo was snubbed.
