Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the 86th Academy Award nominations through January 16th, 2014, when the nominations are announced.
The best animated feature race looks unusually weak so far this year, with Hayao Miyazaki's alleged swan song "The Wind Rises" (Miyazaki won this award back in 2003) and Disney's "Frozen" seeming like the showdown (Disney owns the US rights to "Rises" as well, so its a win-win for them). It's hard to imagine the commercially successful, critically mixed likes of "Monster's University," "Despicable Me 2" and "The Croods" winning the award -- though all three have excellent shots at getting nominated.
