Everyone's been analyzing various film awards to predict which movie will win the Best Picture Oscar. Should we use the Annie Awards, announced Saturday, to predict the Best Animated Feature Oscar? The International Animated Film Society feature film winner is considered a good Oscar predictor.

Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were Rabbit
won not only the big Annie for best animated feature (beating Chicken Little, Madagascar, and Corpse Bride), but also Annies for best director, best music, and best writing. If the Aardman Animation-produced film were up for Best Picture Oscar, Ang Lee might be sweating right now.

Wallace & Gromit faces Corpse Bride and Howl's Moving Castle for the animated feature Oscar this year. Many people have noticed that none of the animated Oscar nominee films are computer animated; they're hand-drawn or, in the case of the cheese-loving British inventors, stop-motion animated. Is this simply a fluke, or is it a backlash against the computer animation trend?
