Klaus, Sergio Pablos' Santa Claus origin story and the first original animated motion picture from Netflix, on Saturday emerged as the big winner in a night of surprises at the annual Annie Awards, presented by the International Animated Film Society (ASIFA-Hollywood) at UCLA's Royce Hall.
Klaus won seven Annies, including for best animated feature, direction, editing, production design, character design, character animation and storyboarding.
It was a huge night for Netflix, as its other animated feature Oscar contender, I Lost My Body, nabbed three trophies, including for best independent animated feature, writing and music.
Klaus and I Lost My Body are Oscar-nominated alongside Toy Story 4, Missing Link and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. The latter three films all failed to win an award on Saturday. (How to Train Your Dragon: Homecoming won an Annie for best special production.)
Frozen 2, which with Missing Link entered the evening with the most nominations, collected two trophies for effects and voice acting (Josh Gad for Olaf), while Avengers: Endgame won the Annie for character animation in a live-action feature.
A complete list of winners follows.
