Best Animated Feature: After a nice four-year run for Disney-Pixar with "Ratatouille," "Wall-E," "Up" and "Toy Story 3," the streak was snapped last year by "Rango" – thanks to no Disney nominees. This year, "Brave" is the Disney-Pixar entry, but Disney also has "Wreck-It Ralph" and Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie," making this a very close and interesting race. Burton was passed over in 2005 for "Corpse Bride," his only other nomination, so awarding "Frankenweenie" would be a way to reward him for some great work he wasn't nominated for as a director like "Batman," "Edward Scissorhands" and "Sweeney Todd." I think it comes down to that or "Brave."
