I think Animated performances should be allowed to be recognised

By that, I take it you mean motion capture performances, as opposed to, say, Buzz's 'performance' in Toy Story?

This was a big hoo-ha with Andy Serkis and Avatar, but I disagree. A 100% 'live' performance was performed exactly as you see on screen. With a CGI enhanced animation, anything that the actor didn't quite 'nail', such as expression, emotion, voice etc can easily be altered, so you can't be sure how much is digital FX and how much is actual acting.
My first thoughts when I read that was Robin Williams in Aladin.
