Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Animated Feature

The competition: Brave, Frankenweenie, ParaNorman, Pirates: Band of Misfits, Wreck-It Ralph

Previous winners: Rango, 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: TBA
The facts: This category has existed since 2001. Pixar has won every time it was nominated except for when “Monsters Inc” lost to “Shrek” and “Cars” lost to “Happy Feet.” This year, “Brave” took home the Golden Globe, while “Wreck-It Ralph” won the Annie Award and the PGA Award.
Who should win: “Brave,” “Frankenweenie,” and “Wreck-It Ralph” were all great. “ParaNorman” was a pale imitation of “Frankenweenie,” and “Pirates: Band of Misfits” absolutely does not belong here.
Who will win: It’s a toss-up. I think that Wreck-It Ralph has the momentum right now.
