Disney/Pixar's Inside Out continued its road to the Oscars on Saturday by picking up 10 awards, including best animated feature and best director for Pete Docter, at the 43rd annual Annie Awards for animation at UCLA’s Royce Hall.
It also won Annies for character animation, character design, editing, music, production design, storyboarding, voice acting (Phyllis Smith) and writing. The writing team of Docter, Meg LeFauve and Josh Cooley are additionally nominated for an Oscar for original screenplay, along with Ronnie del Carmen.
Also during the evening, the award for best independent animated feature was presented to Oscar-nominated Boy and the World, Brazilian artist Alê Abreu's hand-drawn experience that depicts the wonders and struggles of the modern world as seen through the eyes of a young boy. It was produced by Filme de Papel and distributed in the U.S. by GKIDS. Disney/Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur collected one trophy for animated effects.
Alongside Inside Out and Boy and the World, the films nominated for the Oscar for best animated feature are Anomalisa, the Charlie Kaufman-penned Paramount release; Shaun the Sheep Movie, from the U.K.'s Aardman Animations; and When Marnie Was There, from Japan's Studio Ghibli and distributor GKIDS. All three came up short at the Annies.
In the Annie categories for live-action productions, The Revenant’s bear (who appears to be named "Judy," according to the winners list), created by a team at Industrial Light & Magic, topped the category for character animation, and Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron earned the award for animated effects.
In the television competition, Gracie Films' The Simpsons was named best animated series for a general audience and a second Fox series, Bob's Burgers, won two awards. Disney Television Animation earned five awards including three for Disney Mickey Mouse; and DreamWorks Animation collected two, for Dragons: Race to the Edge and Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show.
Joe Ranft, Phil Roman and Isao Takahata received Winsor McKay Awards for career achievement, and Don Hahn was the June Foray Award recipient for charitable impact on the industry.
