So here's my query:
If Pixar isn't gonna take the award this year, who's it gonna be? Suddenly the category of Best Anmiated Feature is interesting. Most years it would seem an upset if Pixar wasn't the victor. Think about it, how many years in a row, since the category's inception, has Pixar won the prize? First two and then... Four (that's in ten years... they've won six out of the ten awards... literally 3/5ths the awards that have ever been won. That's a nuts number when you consider how many production companies have actually won the award even once. Nothing comes close. Dreamworks only has two awards to its credit. Studio Ghibli (which I love) only has one and Warner Bros defeated Cars (1) back in 2006.
We not only have a general dislike from audiences of Cars 2... but an example of the franchise coming short with the academy in years past. How many more ways can you say No?
So here's my very short list...
Winnie The Pooh
Kung Fu Panda 2
Since it was such a small category last year and I don't know what other animated films are coming out (if any) before 2012, and since I despised Rio I guess that's my whole short list for this year.
Post to this. I'd very much like to hear your opinions.
