Rango Early Reviews: "One Spectacular-Looking Movie," "Chaotic," "Wildly Imaginative" (UPDATED)
Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 84th Academy Award winners through February 26th, when the winners are announced.

"Rango" is most certainly the frontrunner here, but in such a lackluster year there's room for surprise, particularly by way of two surprise European nominees, "Chico & Rita" and "A Cat in Paris." But I wouldn't bet on that scenario.

Best animated feature predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here.

The Nominees:
A Cat in Paris
Chico & Rita
Kung Fu Panda 2

Puss In Boots

The Predicted Winner: Rango
The Possible Spoiler: Chico & Rita
