Best Animated Film
Why did Pixar's Brave win the Oscar? It told the story of a Scottish princess who was determined to forge her own destiny but it seems to have lost its way somewhere. If anything, it made one long for a film like Up. Now that was a fantastic tale told well.
Brave simply paled in comparison to the other contenders, particularly ParaNorman. ParaNorman was a superior film in every aspect and in this writer's humble opinion deserving of the Oscar. It's quite unfortunate that it didn't win and rather tragic that it will probably fade into obscurity as an underwatched film.
