Article Excerpt:

Coco and The Breadwinner are the top competitors for the Annies (and maybe the Oscars)亚博主页

The Annie Awards first began handing out prizes in 1992 but weren't quite on a calendar year yet withBeauty and The Beast,a 1991 film,honored in that inaugural year.They've since aligned themselves to the calendar and last year their top prize went toZootopia,which also took the Oscar.Coco leads their nominations for 2017 and also presumably leads the Oscar race withThe Breadwinnerthe widely admired darkhorse at both.Presumably againas we won't know what the Oscar nominations are until January 23rd.

Both of the leaders are powerfully rooted in cultural specificity (Mexico and Afghanistan respectively) and are,in their own way,tearjerkers,rather than the more traditionally glib action comedies that tend to be the bread and butter of the animated film world...at least in America.

We'd love to raise a glass to the nominations for the streaming seriesTrollhunterswhich we're huge fans of but we'd rather throw the contents of that glass inb Annie's face for preferencingCars 3 and Despicable Me 3over the insanity ofThe Lego Batman Movie.If you wanted to honor a sequel,that's really the way you wanna go?The complete list of nominees and a few more comments,cheers,and jeers are after the jump...
