The nominees for the upcoming 45th Annie Awards ceremony have been announced and you can see the full list of nominees by clicking here. Pixar’s Coco is in the lead with 13 nominations! A few of the interesting categories are as follows:

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
Cars 3
Coco
Despicable Me 3
The Boss Baby

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE-INDEPENDENT

In This Corner of the World
Loving Vincent
Napping Princess
The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales
The Breadwinner

BEST ANIMATED SHORT SUBJECT

Dear Basketball
Hedgehog’s Home
Negative Space
Scavengers
Son of Jaguar

BEST VOICE ACTING IN AN ANIMATED FEATURE PRODUCTION

Nick Kroll (Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie)
Anthony Gonzalez (Coco)
Saara Chaudry (The Breadwinner)
Laara Sadiq (The Breadwinner)
Zach Galifianakis (The LEGO Batman Movie)

What do you all think of the nominees? I’m really surprised that The LEGO Batman Movie didn’t get a nomination for Best Animated Feature whilst The Boss Baby did! Also, was Zach Galifianakis’ voicework as the Joker really THAT good to warrant a Best Voice Acting nomination? Glad to see The Breadwinner, The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales, and Dear Basketball getting love though!
