What? No The Snow Queen? :P I always found it unusual that The Smurfs was deemed ineligible, when that same year, Alvin and the Chipmunks 3 was okay. Pretty sure there were more Smurfs in the former than Chipmunks in the latter.

Anyway, I think the nominees will be:

The Croods
Epic
Ernest & Celestine
Frozen
Monsters University

1. Frozen
2. Ernest & Celestine
3. Monsters, University
4. Turbo
5. A Letter to Momo

VERY early. And I can easily see PIXAR bias rearing its ugly head if Monsters University turns out much better than expected. And the Japanese trailers have led me to believe it will surprise.

Sotiris, I notice Epic in your top 5. Maybe you should watch the latest trailer... and weep:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0afRTYtTnQ

This thing makes Ferngully look like A Streetcar Named Desire.

Epic-fail.

3. Frozen
4. Monsters University
5. The Croods

And I think Disney should win for once, so... FROZEN!!!
BTW. I've only seen The Croods, and I really didn't like it, but I'm sure it will get a nomination :/

I think "Epic" looks pretty awesome. It certainly looks like a departure for Blue Sky as it seems more action-adventure than goofy comedy (though we do get a bit of that with the slugs, but they've made me laugh in all of the trailers). And while the story definitely seems reminiscent of Ferngully, I think that film's problem wasn't the story, but rather the execution of it which was very bogged down by its environmental message. You can quote this post if I'm wrong, but I predict this will be Blue Sky's How to Train Your Dragon, the movie that shows they can make something dramatic and majestic which wows everybody.

You did see that trailer, right? Beyoncé and Pitbull?

:huh:

I'd be happy to be proven wrong, but this trailer made my interest drop to rock bottom. I'd say it's off the radar completely for the animated feature Oscar now.

Why? Did those two write and direct the movie? :P If the script is strong and Chris Wedge's direction is passionate enough, that will be enough to make this a winner. The visuals already look like they trump those in every previous Blue Sky film.

But we will see what the reaction is in two months.

Wouldn't write it off just yet. I find plenty of film trailers to be awful, they aren't very representative of the full movie.

Wizart's Snow Queen hasn't secured a U.S. theatrical distribution as of yet.

Don't believe the Japanese trailers. They make films look better than they actually are. :lol:

It's not that bad. The international trailer is much better though. Sure, the film's premise is not the most original out there but I like the visuals and storywise it seems much better that Blue Sky Studios' usual fare.

Although Pitbull's character seems a bit obnoxious and redundant, Beyoncé's character actually looks pretty interesting.

I'll say:

Epic
Turbo
Frozen
Monster's U
Despicable Me 2

Epic has the best trailer by far of all the other animated films that have trailers. I hate "Ferngully," but "Epic" looks amazingly good, hopefully it's not plagued with Blue Sky's brand of kiddie humor. I want to be more on the line of Robots, which is their best film to date.

I would have completely counted out "Despicable Me 2," but the new trailer is actually pretty good. It looks to delve into Gru and the girls relationship.

"Turbo" and "Monster's U" look decent, but nothing special, but I hope I'm proven wrong.

"Frozen" sounds the most exciting. Mainly because of all the mystery and Disney's current streak of gold.

I don't know a lot about many of these films (they usually don't come on my radar until commercials/etc.), but I don't need to know the other candidates to know Monsters already won when it was put into production. :P

How did you guess? :P

And it's not just Brave, the Japanese trailer for Tangled also made the movie look better than it actually was.

Come on Sotiris, you didn't like the Pink song in Tangled's 1st US trailer? Or what about the rough-draft trailer that added that Miley Cyrus remake "Girls just want to have fun"? :lol:

A little too early to make assumptions. I don't know if Monsters University would win, even if it is a Pixar movie, mainly because it's a sequel/prequel. The only animated sequel (let alone only sequel altogether) I know that won the Oscar was Toy Story 3. Heck, Cars 2 didn't even GET nominated because of its reception.

Oh wow... This year might actually be the weakest in terms of animated output. Of the ones mentioned, I see The Croods being Dreamworks's sole representative as Turbo looks to be Pop Culture driven Dreamworks, whereas Croods has a well known director behind the helm, and is a visually creative film. For Pixar, unless Monsters U turns out to be even worse than Cars 2 it will be in, but as excited as I am for that I don't see it as being Pixar as their absolute best. Frozen could be a surprise, but it is too early to tell since we have nothing about it save for early renders and concept art. Epic from Fox may also have a chance. Planes is too commercial for it to gain anything, and Despicable Me 2 and Cloudy 2 may have a chance IF they manage to surpass the originals.

But yeah, this year is rather tame compared to the lineup we had last year.
