After wiping the floor with Toy Story 3 at the Visual Effects Society Awards, How to Train Your Dragoncontinues to rake by winning 10 Annie Awards Saturday night.
But don’t get too excited, Dragon fans. A big part of the reason Dragon won 10 Annies was due to Disney/Pixar boycotting the 38th annual presentation with complaints they have about the voting process. Disney/Pixar still received 7 nominations, but the heavy dose of awards went to the DreamWorks Animation team.
All this buzz for Dragon leading into the final voting stage could spell an upset at the Oscars, but I would bet strongly against that happening. You have to remember, voters will be looking to recognize the entire Toy Story franchise this year, since the Best Animated Feature Oscar was not in existence during the first two films run. Not to mention, the Disney/Pixar film is up for Best Picture. It would be a little more than silly to have it be the only animated film nominated for the best film overall, if it is not going to at least win its own genre category.
