Yes, the nominations for the 40th Annie Awards have been announced! The Annie Awards, for those of you who don’t know, are like the Academy Awards for animation. It’s probably the highest level of recognition that one in the animation industry can get! I may post the full list of categories and nominations later, but for now I’ll just list the nominations for Best Animated Feature:

Brave – Pixar Animation Studios


Frankenweenie – The Walt Disney Studios


Hotel Transylvania – Sony Pictures Animation


ParaNorman – Focus Features


Rise of the Guardians – DreamWorks Animation

The Pirates! Band of Misfits – Aardman Animations


The Rabbi’s Cat – GKIDS

Wreck-It Ralph – Walt Disney Animation Studios


Let me know in the comments which film do you think will win? And also which do you think should win? I’m not sure which should win because I haven’t seen many of these yet. But I think that “Wreck-It Ralph” will win!
