We've got seven good front-runners for five nominations this year, and in the final tally, Cloudy just AIN'T ONE OF THEM.
(No, seriously--I am the only one, aren't I, who sank in his seat and expected bad slacker-humor the minute "A Film By A Lot Of People" came onscreen and got it, no matter how much low-rent "Dad doesn't understand!" Pixar 101 they threw at us to pretend it was All Cuddly 'N Stuff?...What Kool-Aid was I not drinking at the screening I went to??)
We know it's Fox, Up and Frog for the win, and it's just going to be such a pitched battle between 9 and Coraline for the last two spots (9 looks smooth but Coraline has Nightmare/Xmas nostalgia and a plot) that, yes, what does Ponyo have to do to get its usually free nomination around here?
