Kung Fu Panda 2 once again follows Po (Jack Black), who is now a trained warrior, and the Furious Five (Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu and David Cross) as they battle with a new enemy, evil peacock Lord Shen (Gary Oldman).

Oldman and James Hong, who plays Po's father Mr Ping, were each recognised for their vocal talents in the animated film.

Both Dreamworks' Puss in Boots and Paramount's Rango got nine nods, while Disney's critically-acclaimed Winnie the Pooh received eight nominations and Pixar's Cars 2 got seven nods.

The 'Best Animated Feature' nominations are as follows:
