D'oh! Did I really put Cars as best Animated Feature winner? That was supposed to be Happy Feet......

Dr. Worm said...

You DID put cars, but as the Oscars still haven't happened, you're still allowed to change your mind. You'll note that the main post has been edited to show your selection as Happy Feet for best animated feature.

Dr. Worm said...
