An outstanding crop of children’s and family films hit theaters in 2012, and I would like to give my awesome readers the chance to weigh in on their favorites. Readers have already let me know that “Brave,” “Hotel Transylvania,” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dog Days” are some of their favorites.
The Oscar nominees for Best Animated Feature are “Brave,” “Frankenweenie,” “ParaNorman,” “The Pirates! Band of Misfits,” and “Wreck-It Ralph.” The Golden Globe nominees for Best Animated Feature were “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Hotel Translyvania,” “Frankenweenie,” “Rise of the Guardians,” and “Brave,” with “Brave” taking home the prize. Perhaps you enjoyed “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” or “Life of Pi.”
I’ll be announcing the winner on Oscar week. Just leave a comment below with your favorite film to vote!
