1. "Finding Nemo" (Andrew Stanton, 2003)
Speaking of character, the one film from the Pixar stable that utilizes character to convey theme while featuring voice performances worthy of awards recognition is without a doubt the studio’s fifth effort, "Finding Nemo." Along with "Ratatouille" and "Brave," the film features some of the most beautiful animation of the lot, sports a compellingly dramatic score from Thomas Newman and situates its message in every nook and cranny of the piece. Quite frankly, it should have even landed a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Ellen DeGeneres, who along with Albert Brooks, took the viewer on an engaging ride from start to finish in this, Pixar’s greatest achievement to date. And it's coming back to theaters this fall in 3D before finally hitting Blu-ray, the one Pixar film that hasn't received the HD treatment yet.
