A Look at Best Animated Film

The nominees are...

Surf's Up

I'VE SEEN: 2/3. All but Surf's Up.
I PREDICTED: 2/3. All but Surf's Up. Notice a theme?

PERSEPOLIS-I suppose there's room for an upset of some sort, but it would be a monumental surprise. I would love to see it happen, though.

RATATOUILLE-A pretty strong lock. Personally, I thought it was underwhelming (though still very enjoyable) compared to The Incredibles and Finding Nemo, but it's Pixar, it's stylish and it's the best reviewed film of the year. What more does it need to win this category?

SURF'S UP-The fact that this got into this category over The Simpsons Movie is just embarrassing. While its ten Annie nominations give a (very) small reason to believe that this could win in a huge upset, saying this has any significant chance is laughable.

WILL WIN: Ratatouille
SHOULD WIN: Persepolis

1. Ratatouille
2. Persepolis
3. Surf's Up

TOMORROW: Best Adapted Screenplay (WE'RE GETTING INTO THE BIG 8!)

Hey Brian, thanks for the kind words about my blog =). I'm working on a few posts now to get back in the game, so I hope you'll check back soon. I also added you to my bloggerlist, so I hope you'll do the same ^_~.

And if there were ANY justice in this world, Persepolis would take that baby home. What a remarkable movie!
