    I know I'm in the minority but I want Iron Giant to win over Lion King. I LOVE Iron Giant. Lion King is my favourite Disney animated movie but I balled like a baby watching Iron Giant. Also to the people complaining that no anime is moving on and it's all Toy Story... Miyazaki should've had a few films that moved on and Howl's Moving Castle is 1000x better than Frozen but there is a reason Pixar and Disney films are all popular, they're great and it's tough to get upset about upsets because these are all amazing films. And the Toy Story's are gonna do well because they should. There ratings on Rotten Tomatoes are 100, 100 and 99. My picks are... Iron Giant Toy Story Up Aladdin Toy Story 3 Monsters Inc. Beauty and the Beast Toy Story 2
