'Wreck-it Ralph' Wrecks the Annie Awards

Disney

The Annie Awards may not be as high profile as the Oscars, but they're always a fascinating look at a corner of the film and television world that is often overlooked during the awards season: animation. Considering the company's legacy, it feels appropriate that Disney dominated at the 40th Annual Annie Awards, with 'Wreck-it Ralph' and 'Paperman' going home as the big winners.

'Wreck-it Ralph' took home five awards: Best Animated Feature, Best Director, Best Music, Best Writing and Best Voice Acting for Alan Tudyk (which really is a wonderful performance). The much-hyped 'Paperman' (which actually played before 'Wreck-it Ralph' in theaters) scooped up Best Animated Short Subject. The rest of the awards were spread around evenly, with 'ParaNorman,' 'Rise of the Guardians' and 'Brave' getting love. Film snobs and fans of British comedy will rejoice to learn that Terry Gilliam received the Winsor McCay award.
