It’s funny that the awards watching industry were mostly off our marks this year in so many ways — nobody really knew where this race was headed and still don’t. It’s been a while since the Oscars were so unpredictable. The animated category in particular has been a mystery. One of the ways it’s been mysterious is in the animated feature race. While the general consensus of awards pundits were underestimating Brave in favor of the more generally liked (by a certain demographic) Wreck-it Ralph. But Brave has gotten two awards from the industry – last night’s Editors Guild and Cinema Audio Society. Sure, those guild awards don’t necessarily mean that the whole of the Academy will go that way but it also won the BAFTA. That has to mean Brave is now the film to beat. But I think it’s still a three-way race between Brave, Wreck-It Ralph and Frankenweenie.
