ANIMATED FEATURE: The season's animation awards have been evenly split between Disney's "Ralph" and Pixar's "Brave." Both feature poignant parent-child stories: "Brave" between a mother and daughter and "Ralph" with its faux-father and pixie glitch girl. Both received equally strong reviews. Our hunch is that "Ralph," which arrived in theaters in November, will be a bit fresher in the minds of voters in a category that isn't as thoroughly viewed as you would hope.
