Paperman
But Disney does not stop there!

I have seen all but one of these wonderful movies and was impressed by each and every one. Lincoln deserves to win in every category it was nominated for.
As for Best Animated Movie I’m torn between the two of them I saw. I did not see Frankenweenie but enjoyed Brave and Wreck-It Ralph immensely! Of the two I saw I believe Brave is by far the best!
Paperman is a wonderful short that had me from the moment it started. It pulls at the heart strings. It was complex in its simplicity. I’ve not seen any of the other shorts so I can’t speak of them.
