Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Animated Feature

The competition: Coraline, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Princess and the Frog, The Secret of Kells, Up

Previous winners: Wall-E, Ratatouille, Happy Feet, Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, The Incredibles
My winner: 9
Who should win: Up
Who will win: This one is locked up, but let’s go through the contenders just to be thorough. There isn’t any chance of either “Coraline” or “The Princess and the Frog” winning because neither has enough buzz. Surprising inclusion “The Secret of Kells” (review coming in the next week) should consider its nomination its win since, despite being an intriguing underdog, it can’t compete with the must popular and beloved animated film of the year. While many were impressed with Wes Anderson’s stop-motion effort, it really isn’t going to defeat the heartwarming and lovely Up.
