Hayao Miyazaki’s final film may be the frontrunner of this weak category

In recent years the field for Best Animated feature has usually been dominated by one film. In 2008 it was Wall-E, in 2009 it was Up and in 2010 it was Toy Story 3. All three of these films received nominations in additional major categories (Up and Toy Story 3 were nominated for Best Picture). However, last year and the year before it seems that the fields have been thinning, and this year may be the weakest by far. Check out the rest of our categories here.

Locks for a Nomination

1. Frozen (Many have called it Disney’s best film since their renaissance in the 90’s. It also has the strongest chance for some below the line nominations like for sound and score.)
2. The Wind Rises (Hayoa Miyazaki has been credited with creating some of the best anime of all time including Academy award winner Spirited Away. To further help his case he has announced this film as his last.)

Good Chances

3. Monsters University (This is Pixar’s best horse in the race. Despite its mixed reviews it fortunately premiered in this

weak year.)
4. Despicable Me 2 (Like Monsters University this sequel received mixed reviews, however the weakness of the year and its strength at the box office helps its chances.)

Could be any one of them

5. The Croods
6. Ernest & Celestine
7. Letters to Momo
