Annie Awards Noms: ‘Inside Out’, ‘Anomalisa’, ‘Shaun The Sheep’, ‘Good Dinosaur’ & ‘Peanuts ‘ Up For Best Feature

On 01, Dec 2015 | In Featured, Press & News | By

Two Disney-Pixar films and an adult stop-motion animated comedy and drama were some of the top features nominated at the 43rd Annie Awards. And even though Pixar has The Good Dinosaur and Inside Out in the running, it’s the latter title about the emotions in an adolescent girl’s head that’s charging the way with 14 nominations.

 The Annies are given out by the International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood, recognizing the year’s best in animation across 36 categories. The 2016 awards ceremony is set for February 6 at UCLA’s Royce Hall.

Overlooked in the best feature category was Universal/Illumination Entertainment’s Minionsthe second-highest-grossing animated title of the year at $335.8M behind Inside Out‘s $356.4M. Nontheless, Minions counts the third-most noms with eight after The Good Dinosaur‘s nine.

Duke Johnson and Charlie Kaufman’s R-rated stop motion title Anomalisa earned five nominations including animated feature, music, editing, voice acting and directing.
