Golden Globe Nominees: Best Animated Film

My predictions: 2/3, missing “Bolt”
Who’s missing? “Madagascar 2,” “Waltz with Bashir,” “The Tale of Desperaux”

This category’s pretty small, and everyone knew “Wall-E” and “Kung Fu Panda” would be here. Last year, “Persepolis” got in for Foreign Film here then Animated Film at the Oscars, and I think the same fate is in store for “Waltz with Bashir.” “Bee Movie” was the Globe nominee and then eventually lost its slot, along with “The Simpsons Movie,” to “Surf’s Up.” “Bolt” is popular right now, but I think it will be eclipsed by “Waltz with Bashir” and that will be the Oscar lineup. I plan to rent “Kung Fu Panda” at some point in the next few weeks, and I’m seeing “Waltz with Bashir” next week. Thoughts on both those soon.

Who will win? It’s got to be Wall-E.
