Frozen's results in previous contests:

2016: 10 seed
beat (7) Perfect Blue 19-10
lost to (2) The Iron Giant 18-13

2015: 5 seed
beat (12) Treasure Planet 22-11
beat (4) Lilo & Stitch 41-37 (OT)
lost to (1) The Lion King 32-11

2014: 6 seed
beat (11) Grave of the Fireflies 23-12
lost to (3) Mulan 21-14

...Not bad, but nothing really impressive either. At any rate, we can't say much about Frozen's performance this year without knowing how strong Spider-Verse is.
Congrats to 2019 Guru champ Advokaiser!
Spider verse is absolutely a strong contender, at least for this first year

Love me some Spider-Verse. One of the most ambitious animated films in a long while. Might still be a bit of post-release hype for it but I can't say there's anything that would definitely deserve to win over it.
Perhaps the golden rock was inside us all along.

Semifinals:

(1)The Lion King

(5)WALL-E
(1)Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Grand Final:
(1)Spirited Away
(1)Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Thoughts: Not a bad bracket. Three 1-seeds come out alive in their respective divisions, and Spirited Away comes out victorious with a score of 8.6, more than every other movie in the tournament. The Lion King, Spider-Man and Grave of the Fireflies come very close with a score of 8.5. Had Coco beaten Spider-Man, that movie would've won the division.

On some fun notes:
1) 14-seeds are the only seed to have never won a single match in any of these kind of brackets.
2) The Little Mermaid seems to be the "weakest" movie to win a match when it comes to these scores, it's just that its opponent isn't very "strong", so to speak.
3) The IMDb ratings bracket seems least skewed towards one particular studio: Studio Ghibli, Disney, Pixar and Sony all have one movie out of a division, where as the others have more than one Pixar or Studio Ghibli film.
