Things look to be going great, but Victor's classmate Edgar Gore forces him to tell him how he was able to reanimate his dog.

CNN reported that they all have a good shot, even if "Brave" might the closest thing to a favorite. Also, "Frankenweenie," Tim Burton's passion project that began as one of the director's first short films before becoming a full-length feature almost 30 years later, is the only one to have been part of a popular, if macabre, Museum of Modern Art exhibition.
