Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Animated Feature

The competition: A Cat in Paris, Chico & Rita, Kung Fu Panda 2, Puss in Poots, Rango

Previous winners: Toy Story 3, Up, Wall-E, Ratatouille, Happy Feet, Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Spirited Away, Shrek
My winner: The Adventures of Tintin
Who will win: I’ve only seen two of these nominees, and I much prefer “Chico & Rita” to “Rango.” The first “Shrek” film won the first year this category, so “Puss in Boots” could be popular enough to win. The first “Kung Fu Panda” lost to “Wall-E,” and I don’t see the second one triumphing. With “The Adventures of Tintin” inexplicably and inexcusably not in the race, “Rango” is the likely winner, but the unpredictability that netted nominations for “A Cat in Paris” and “Chico & Rita” could mean that one of them takes this. I’ll play it safe and go with “Rango.”
