It’s alliteration a gogo for the announcement of the 40th Annual Annie Awards.
Brave, Wreck-It Ralph and Rise Of The Guardians lead the nominations, with Hotel Transylvania and ParaNorman not too far behind. It’s a strong set of nominations for Disney, with John Carter and The Avengers also lurking on the sidelines.
As for who to put your money on in regards to the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, well, I think it’s pretty safe to say it’s a two-horse race between Brave and Wreck-It Ralph.

Three Indian offerings also break the top ten and Madagascar 3 and Hotel Transylvania prove they have sticking power well after the half term break. And, though it may be sitting just outside the top five, it’s great to see The Master riding high in its first week on wide release.
Check out the top ten below: Continue reading
