Who should win: I loved “Logorama,” but “A Matter of Loaf and Death” was great too
Who will win: While “Logorama” was enormously clever, Wallace and Gromit have competed in this race three times before, and the only time they lost was when their creator Nick Park helmed another film nominated in the same category that year. This year, they’ll earn their fourth trophy in this category for A Matter of Loaf and Death.
