Annie Nominations Embrace "Coco"and "The Breadwinner"

by Nathaniel R

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...

A Head for Broadway,and a Bod for Singing

Working gal Robert here!Broadway has been absolutely inundated with musicals based on famous movies in the past few years to the point where a friend told me he was going to seeGroundhog's Day: The Musicaland I thought it was a sick joke.What is not a sick joke is that there is one upcoming production that has turned my opinion right around on that subject: a musical version of the 1988 Melanie Griffith vehicleWorking Girlwith music by pop-genius Cyndi Lauper and book by renowned playwright Kim Rosenstock.Let the river run after the jump!

Annie Awards Results.It's Zootopia vs Kubo for the Oscar

The Annie Awards have been happening for 44 years but after some bumpy years in which their loyalties to specific studios were questions,they seemed to have worked things out and their profile is higher each year.Yesterday's even at the UCLA's Royce Hall was a big night for Disney which took 10 prizes.Zootopiacontinued its dominance by taking the top prize.

Though we should quickly note thatKubo and the Two Stringsis still a possible spoiler at the Oscars and took home a few Annies itself.亚博主页As Kris Tapley recently noted,there is momentum for finally honoring Laika who have never missed a nomination in the Animated Feature category but have yet to win it.While I am in the minority that thinksKubois the company's weakest film to date (it's gorgeous,don't misunderstand -- I just think both the episodic plot and the voice work is weaker than in their other films) they're also rapidly outdoing Pixar who have fallen into repetition and sequelizing.

The winners with commentary are after the jump...

Annie Award Nominations: Kubo,Zootopia,The Red Turtle...

Nominations for the 44th annual Annie Awards have been announced.Zootopia leads with 11 nominations with Laika's Kubo and the Two Strings just behind with 10 nominations.Because the Annies have two separate feature categories (the regular one plus an "indie"category which basically means "foreign") you can probably safely assume that the eventual Oscar lineup will be some mishmash between the two.
