44th Annie Awards Nominations

By Matt Neglia The Annie Awards announced their nominations today for the highest awards in Animation. The feature film awards nominations can be seen below. The rest of the nominations can be found here.

A few notes…”Moana” is missing key nominations in both Writing and Directing showing that the support of the branch may be firmly behind either “Kubo And The Two Strings” or “Zootopia.” Also, “Sausage Party” which Sony is campaigning hard managed only a single nomination in editing.  Best Animated Feature
