There's not a lot of pizzazz in this year's field for Best Animated Feature, but there's still a compelling reason for the serious techie to tune in for this category in the form of "The Wind Rises," the latest from legendary anime director Hayao Miyazaki.

True geeks will no doubt take note of how Twitter handles the potential landslide of traffic should "The Wind Rises" win.
