    I vote for Disney and Pixar’s “Monsters University” to win.

    Reason:
    1. Pixar ALWAYS wins the Academy Award for Best Animated Picture at AMPAS.
    2. Their animated features always have reasonable scenes that stayed very well connected to the story.
    3. “Monsters University” reminds me of my college experience.
    4. There’s a lesson from “Monsters University”: Some achievements can easily backfire.
    5. The fun scenes in “Monsters University” is all part of the obstacle courses that Mike and Sully must pass in order to become best scarers in the university.

    6. The climax of “Monsters University” shows PROOF of how achievements can easily backfire. It happens all the time. For example: during Abraham Lincoln’s time in his congressional election, he fought and lost against Steven A. Douglas in 1858 (but won the presidency against Breckenridge in 1860).

    I’m probably the only one who wants Madoka Magica – Rebellion….. I’m a huge fan of the franchise, and I’ve heard from most critics that it’s amazing….. plus, with the animation seen in trailers like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzarO_0ml8I and THIS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=385CHngXmck
    I really will be mad if they pull a BS like they did last year…..
