Best Animated Film 2011 – Which Should Be Nominated?

As seen at Slashfilm, there will be at least 18 eligible animated movies to get Oscar nominations this year, which means there could be 5 nominees in the category.  I’ve actually seen most of them, aside from the four foreign ones and the ones releasing in the next few weeks.  With Pixar’s only entry the underwhelming Cars 2, chances are you could be seeing an underdog take the award this year.  Mark your nominees in this poll:

You can pick up to five movies.  For reference, I’ve seen Rango, Kung Fu Panda 2, Rio, Gnomeo & Juliet, Mars Needs Moms, and plan to see Puss in Boots and The Adventures of Tintin.  May see Cars 2 at some point soon also.  My daughter saw Winnie the Pooh without me.  For me, Rango, Kung Fu Panda 2 (which I said was just about the perfect sequel), and Rio should all be nominees.  I’m thinking Tintin gets one with the Spielberg/Jackson connection, and the fact that it sounds like a pretty darn good movie.  I wouldn’t be surprised (as mentioned in the Slashfilm article) if one of the foreign movies gets in as the fifth nominee.
