2012 Academy Award animation winners

2012 Academy Award animation winners

Bugs Bunny with his OscarOn Sunday night, the winners for the two top Academy Awards animation categories were announced…

Best Animated Picture: Rango

Best Animated Short: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

My previous prediction was right for animated picture.

No, I didn’t sit through the Oscars…the few minutes I did see were awful enough (Billy Crystal’s Sammy Davis Jr. routine…ugh), plus “The Amazing Race” was on. Thank goodness for Twitter.

And yes, it looks like Pixar’s been completely shut out this year. Maybe they’ll fare better next year with the (inevitable) nomination of “Brave,” a film that doesn’t scream “merchandising” like “Cars 2” does.
