Add to the fact that Disney totally ****ed up the marketing and Stanton brought a home run with "Finding Nemo", it wouldn't be surprising if he was given the nod at some point.
I have no idea why this is, but it seems the press loves to take dumps on films with large budgets. Its like they are literally sharpening their knives waiting for something big to flop....then if it does, its like a pack of wolves.
