The 46th annual Annie Awards will be taking place in February of 2019. February 2nd to be exact. If you’re unfamiliar with the Annie Awards, that’s entirely ok…we’ll be happy to fill you in!
The Annie Awards are presented each year by the Los Angeles branch of the International Animated Film Association. Rewarding excellence in animation, the Annie Awards have taken place for the past 46 years. Disney films are no stranger to these accolades. Coco, Tangled, and many other Disney features have been nominated as Disney has dominated the awards in the past. In 2017, The Walt Disney Picture Company earned 35 overall nominations…very impressive!
This year doesn’t seem to be much different as the nominations have been released and there is plenty of Disney flair helping to compile the list. Out of the 36 nomination fields, Walt Disney Pictures secured a whopping 42 nominations…with Wreck-It Ralph 2 and Incredibles 2 leading the way!
Pixar’s Incredibles 2 seems to be in for a big night as they brought home 11 total nominations, followed by Wreck-It Ralph 2 at 10. Mary Poppins Returns, Christopher Robin, and several Disney television programs round out the list of potential winners!
Awards, accolades, and achievements are nothing new to the Walt Disney Company, but with a plethora of sequels released this year, it is good to know that Disney is still king! Disney animation teams are surpassed by none and without a doubt extremely deserving. It will be fun to see if the scheduled 2019 releases can top 42 nominations. With the likes of Frozen 2 and Toy Story 4, it’s sure to be another banner year for the Walt Disney Picture Company.
