    ‘Klaus’ and Netflix Dominate at the Annie Awards

    The Netflix film “Klaus” dominated the film categories at Saturday night’s Annie Awards, the main awards show devoted strictly to animation. The film, made by Spanish animator Sergio Pablos, was a surprise winner of seven awards in the 13 feature-film categories, including Best Animated Feature, along with prizes for directing, character animation, character design, production design, storyboarding and editorial.While Disney’s “Frozen II” and Laika’s “Missing Link” led all films with eight nominations each, “Frozen” had to settle for wins in the animated effects and voice acting categories (for Josh Gad), while “Missing Link” was shut out completely.Other top nominees that went unrewarded included DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4.”Also Read: 'Klaus' Film Review: Animated Santa Claus Origin Story Nails the Magic Better than the ComedyThe animated feature that finished with the second most wins was another Netflix film, the hand-drawn French film “I Lost My Body,” which won in the Best Animated Feature – Independent category, as well as for music and writing.Netflix releases also did well in the television categories, giving the streaming service the kind of dominant showing at the Annies that DreamWorks used to have, until Disney withdrew its support for a couple of years and the Annies changed its voting procedures.“Avengers: Endgame” won for character animation in a live-action production. In the television categories, “Love, Death and Robots” (on Netflix, of course) won four awards, while “Disney Mickey Mouse” and “Carmen Sandiego” each won two.Also Read: Oscar Nominations 2020: 14 Biggest Snubs and Surprises, From Greta Gerwig to 'Klaus' (Photos)In the 18 years that the Oscars have been handing out an award for Best Animated Feature, the Annie winner has gone on to collect the Oscar 13 times, including the last four years in a row.The ceremony took place at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus, part of an unprecedented night of five awards shows in Los Angeles.The winners:Best Animated Feature: “Klaus” Netflix Presents A Production of The Spa Studios and Atresmedia CineBest Animated Feature-Independent: “I Lost My Body” Xilam for NetflixBest Animated Special Production: “How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming” DreamWorks AnimationBest Animated Short Subject: “Uncle Thomas: Accounting for the Days” Ciclope Filmes, National Film Board of Canada, Les ArmateursBest Virtual Reality Production: “Bonfire” Baobab StudiosBest Animated Television/Media Commercial: “The Mystical Journey of Jimmy Page’s ’59 Telecaster” Nexus StudiosBest Animated Television/Media Production for Preschool Children: “Ask the Storybots” Episode: “Why Do We Have to Recycle?” JibJab Bros.
