Ten random things: November 15

Ten movies eligible to be nominated for but exceedingly unlikely to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature:

  1. Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore
  2. Tangled
  3. Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue
  4. My Dog Tulip
  5. Alpha and Omega
  6. Despicable Me
  7. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole
  8. Shrek Forever After
  9. The Illusionist
  10. Megamind

By which I mean if they are nominated, they will lose to Toy Story 3. Academy rules say that if there are fewer than 15 film eligible to be nominated for Best Animated Feature award, there will only be three nominees, so I will predict that the other two nominees will be Megamind and Tangled.

Incidentally, I have seen four of the above: Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, Alpha and Omega, Despicable Me, and Megamind. C&D was terrible, one of the worst movies I've ever seen; A&O was not good but not offensively bad; Despicable Me and Megamind were both very enjoyable. I would give the latter the edge over former, though I think my nephew (with whom I saw all four) would say the opposite. (He liked C&D and A&O, though, so who cares what he thinks?)
