Art lovers must be remembering the year 2002 when at the 74th Academy Award function Shrek won the award in the Best Animation Feature Film category. Until then there were very few such films for consideration. Though Snow White and the Seven Dwarves was the animation film, it had received the Special Achievement Award back in 1938. Animation as an art is comparatively new and for most of its history Walt Disney Pictures was the sole player. Then in mid 1990s two more players –Pixer Animation Studios and Dream Works came into scene. They produced some popular movies like Toy Story, Chicken Run and Shrek.
