question of the day: What will the five nominees for Best Animated Feature Film be?

The 20 pictures in contention for five nominee slots — up from three in recent years — for the upcoming Academy Awards in the Best Animated Feature Film category have been announced. They are:
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
Astro Boy
Battle for Terra
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Coraline
Disney’s A Christmas Carol
The Dolphin: Story of a Dreamer
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
Mary and Max
The Missing Lynx

Monsters vs. Aliens
9
Planet 51
Ponyo
The Princess and the Frog
The Secret of Kells
Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure
A Town Called Panic

Up

(Films I haven’t seen appear in italics.)

What will the five nominees for Best Animated Feature Film be? Note that a prediction of which films Oscar will honor with a nomination is not the same thing as choosing which films you think are the best of the year, so if your favorites are different, feel free to share your favorites as well.

I think, based on what I have seen so far (combined with guesses about what I haven’t seen), that the Oscar nominees will be (alphabetical):

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Coraline
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Ponyo
Up

If I were ranking the top 5 best animated films of the year (that I’ve seen so far, of course), they’d be:

Up
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Coraline
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
9
