Annie Award Winners

I didn't even realize that the ANNIEs were happening this weekend. I guess you lose track of these things when the Oscar race for Best Animated Feature seems like such a done deal. ASIFA-Hollywood did little to sway my prediction by handing their top prize (among many others) to Zootopia, but they spread some wealth to Moana and Kubo. They even handed prizes to three of the five Oscar nominees for Animated Short, making that category even tougher to gauge.

List of movie winners after the cut:

Best Animated Feature - Zootopia
Best Animated Feature (Independent) - The Red Turtle
Best Directing - Rich Moore & Byron Howard, Zootopia
Best Writing - Zootopia
Best Voice Acting - [TIE] Auli'i Cravalho, Moana + Jason Bateman, Zootopia

  1. Yay! The Little Prince won something this awards season.

    Yeah this just further cements that Zootopia is gonna win the Oscar, which I cannot complain that much about since I liked Zootopia, but I feel that Kubo was the much better effort this year. Also an unprecedented tie this year. How many ties have their bit in Annie Awards history? None that I can recall.
