COMMENTARY

I'm going to go out on a limb and take a wild guess for "Revolting Rhymes," though of course buzz is with Kobe Bryant's "Dear Basketball." However, my gut says that it's definitely not as strong of a frontrunner as it's being made out to be, even if it does have the best momentum. If "Rhymes" isn't the one to pull off the upset, it could perhaps also be "Garden Party."

  1. If you say Sanjay will win this needs to be trolled ;)

    1. I've been correct so far in predicting "Sanjay's Super Team" getting shortlisted and then nominated, despite it following three consecutive Oscar misses for Pixar's "The Blue Umbrella", "Party Central" and "Lava" - and now that voting is switching from the animation branch to the entire Academy membership, the biases and preferences of the animation branch will be less applicable. However, as you can see in my commentary, I'm not fully confident in my prediction for Sanjay making it to the end - only question is, if not Sanjay, then who else? I'm tempted to switch it up and go for World of Tomorrow since that just bested Sanjay at the Annies, but the Annies haven't been too reliable in predicting the Oscars and WOT might be too unconventional. However if you would like to make the case for another nominee I'd be open to hearing it, but (for now) I'm going with Sanjay because it made it this far already and it's a great default choice/safe bet if we don't have a fully fledged frontrunner (or two, like last year's Feast vs The Dam Keeper narrative).
