Well, it comes down to the same thing, doesn't it? It still was excluded because they didn't consider motion-capture to be animation, eligible or not. The issue is a confusing one. Anyhow, It's likely better than many animated movies that did get nominated, and I hope the Academy realizes that the rule is too restrictive. Actors or not, I don't think motion-captured movies should be excluded, if they're genuine efforts. They're only going to become more common over time.
