State of the Race: First Predictions - Animated Feature

Cars 2
Happy Feet 2
Kung-Fu Panda 2

Other Possibilities - Arthur Christmas, Rango, Winne the Pooh, Gnomeo and Juliet, Rio

Commentary - So I am playing it safe when it comes to these predictions, and putting three sequels to past winners/nominees, although the likes of Arthur Christmas, Rango, and Rio could bump in for a spot or two. It looks like there is a rematch between Happy Feet and Cars, with both their sequels looking to be the top contenders once again. I think this time that Cars may have the better shot. Happy Feet doesn't seem like the movie that would have a great sequel, and although Cars is considered the one Pixar dud (still got rave reviews and huge box office reception mind you), they know how to make good sequels (aka Toy Story 2 and 3). Finally, Kung-Fu Panda won a bunch of Annies, but there was no way in hell it could beat Wall-E, but this time it has less competition, and if it is good, could sneak in and grab an Oscar.
