Earlier this week I wrote about the whole of DreamWorks Animation, which came after I — no joke — revisited all 28 features released by the studio so far and attended a screening of the studio's latest, "How to Train Your Dragon 2" (hitting theaters next week). That hotly anticipated sequel, which bowed at the Cannes Film Festival last month, comfortably took the top spot, with the 2010 original firmly at #2. Because these, to me, are the crowning achievements of DreamWorks so far. I imagine the campaigns behind such competitors as "The Lego Movie" (Warner Bros.) and the still unseen "Boxtrolls" (Focus Features) would cringe at reading something like what I'm about to write, but I'm going to write it anyway: the Best Animated Feature Film Oscar race seems all but over, and I really have to say, I think "Dragon 2" deserves to be in the Best Picture conversation later this year as well. »
