  1. There's no chance either The Lorax or Madagascar 3 gets a nomination. I'm also a tad concerned that you don't have Leafie up for eligibility there; I'd like to think it has a good chance of scoring a nod.

  2. I think The Lorax might have a chance, but we'll know soon when it comes out. You're probably right about Madagascar 3, since neither of the first two got nominations.

    Thanks for the tip about Leafie. I hadn't heard of it but will definitely put it in my next set of predictions!
