I didn’t WANT it to though.
I liked ParaNorman and Wreck-It Ralph more.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Brave.
I just felt it didn’t quite live up to Pixar’s standards.
I knew it would win though cuz it has all the tropes that the Oscars eat up.
(the Scottish highland setting, a young woman fighting for her freedom, a film made by Pixar, etc.)
Also, why weren’t Rise of the Guardians or The Secret World of Arrietty nominated?
Oh well, as long as Paperman won best animated short.
I didn’t realize Guacamole was nominated. That’s a really great short too…
but Paperman is still my favorite.
