The Best Animated Feature category wasn't created solely to hand Pixar Oscars — although they've definitely dominated. From traditional, stop-motion, and anime to computer animation, the award has gone to a variety of deserving films. With the Oscars almost here, here's every Best Animated Feature winner since its inception in 2001.
There have been lots of changes in how we listen to music since the vinyl record was the dominant format. From records to cassettes to CDs and finally the mp3, how we store music has evolved, but the process of making a record has stayed basically the same since the early 1900s. With this in mind, a group of people is bringing record manufacturing out of the dark ages and into the 21st century.

By day, Iceland is well-known for its rugged terrain and clear, stunning vistas. By night, that same harsh countryside softens into something almost alien — nearly unrecognizable from its daylit counterpart. The OZZO Photography crew captured Iceland under a full moon, and with a little help from the Northern Lights, presents a rarely seen side of the island nation.
Inspired by one of the most iconic military timepieces ever created, the Pilot Pioneer is a reinterpretation with real character. The mechanical hand-wound watch takes cues from the legendary Hamilton W10, a watch produced for the British Royal Air Force in 1973 and carries with it the form and function that made it memorable. Each timepiece features a black textured dial that's as easy to read as it was for pilots in the 70's, with luminous sword hands and numerals. It also has a sleek vintage-inspired case that integrates seamlessly into the lugs for added comfort. The new release also adds hardened mineral crystal with double anti-reflective coating for an extra layer of toughness. The Pilot Pioneer is powered by the H-50 hand-winding movement with 80 hours of power reserve and is finished with your choice of a gray textile or brown leather NATO strap.

El-P and Killer Mike took over NPR's Tiny Desk for a live show so big it almost didn't fit the room. The two comprise supergroup Run the Jewels, known for their scathing brand of activist hip-hop that has evolved to be louder and better with each album since 2013. The duo brought three songs from their latest EP RTJ3 to NPR's Washington, D.C. office for 11 of the best minutes from the hip-hop underground.
If you're going to set world speed records on a production mountain bike, you need a few things: A complete lack of fear, a good bike, and a very funny looking aerodynamic suit. Max Stöckl broke his own 2011 speed record, running down a 45° gravel slope in Chile's Atacama desert. Max topped just over 103 MPH on the run, breaking his old record of 102 MPH down the side of a volcano in Nicaragua.
