its really disappointing to see that cars 2 was not nominated...... it was a nice movie.....and KFP2 i must say also had to be there.........the main problem here was the nomination of rango....i liked the movie but still there were quite better movies out there....
I liked Cars 2 when I saw it in the theater, but didn't love it like a lot of other Pixar films. We have a 3 year old at home who is obsessed with all things Cars related. We've probably watched Cars 2 more than 30 times over the last several weeks. I certainly had a better appreciation for the film after seeing it many times. That said, we've now started watching the first Cars film in our home at least once a day. There is no comparison that the first film was so much better. While Cars 2 had great animation, as all of Pixar's films, I'm not surprised it didn't get nominated.
I dont' understand what's wrong with Rango. I loved it.
Nothing really....i will say it could have been funny but....all in all a Beautiful film that was very well put together and I would say it was the best animated film of the year.
As for Cars 2...it was not the worst movie ever BUT it was nothing special either just was not heart warming or inspiring like most Pixar Films....it was a fun film that makes lost of money....just wish Pixar would have released something else to get the Oscar but what can you do.
Also as good as Pooh was (loved it) it was toooooooo short and the fact that we know two other storys were taken out for me makes no sense but that Disney wanted to cut the budget for the film.............all in all Muppets get my WTF moment with how high the reviews are it should have gotten nominated for best film for sure..i know it would not have won but it should have a least got a nomination it was funny and touching and breaks the 3rd wall in the best kind of ways.

And totally agree on 'KFP2'.The character and production designs were exceptional and expanded greatly from the first film.
BTW - According to The Hollywood Reporter, 'KFP2' made Jennifer Yuh Nelson the highest-grossing female director of all-time with $663 million at the box office alone, the original made $631.7 million.
And she's only the second female director to solely direct an animated feature theatrical film from a major studio. The first was Jun Falkenstein with Disney's 'The Tigger Movie' in 2000.
Rango was named best animated feature, and won three additional competition categories for writing, editing and character design, at the 39th annual Annie Awards, Saturday at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus.
The International Animated Film Society (ASIFA-Hollywood) also spread its love, with Jennifer Yuh Nelson earning the best direction award for Kung Fu Panda 2, which won a second Annie for production design. The Adventures of Tintin also collected a pair Annies, for music and animated effects.
Disney picked up a number of awards for both film and television productions:
