2010 ANNIE AWARD NOMINATIONS BY CATEGORY PRODUCTION CATEGORIES

(If I’m counting right, I think How to Train Your Dragon leads. Toy Story 3 has three nominations — apparently Disney did not submit this film to the Annies to protest their recent changes in the way the voting works — that didn’t stop the film from getting nominated, but it may explain its low showing here).

Best Animated Feature
Despicable Me – Illumination Entertainment
How to Train Your Dragon – DreamWorks Animation
Tangled – Disney
The Illusionist – Django Films
Toy Story 3 – Disney/Pixar

kung fu panda

ok, ok, I know the outcry of conventional wisdom still scorns Kung Fu Panda for sweeping the Annies in 2008 when everybody’s darling was WALL-E. But there’s always been room in my heart for both films and after the dust settles I try to stop wringing my hands about what movie won what trophy each season. In any other year, Kung Fu Panda would have been an very worthy Oscar winner. I will say this about Dreamworks: they never loose sight of the fact that their primary target audience is children. And for me, as far as humor and sheer fun, movies like Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon often succeed better as pure joyride entertainment than the more cerebral offerings from Pixar.

how to train your dragon

Kris Tapley and Steve Pond reached the same conclusion that the AMPAS won’t have the required 16 needed to make up five nominees. Therefore, there will be three.

Tapley notes that the HFPA (the Globes) will still probably nominate five.

1. Toy Story 3
2. How to Train Your Dragon

And 3. Despicable Me, Megamind, Tangled or Shrek Forever After?

It’s everywhere. It seems as if every film coming out these days is available with 3d glassses. This of course has a lot to do with money. Ever since that groundbreaker Avatar came out & stormed the Box Office, the studios wanted to take advantage of the 3d medium by releasing every mediocre effort with glasses. When conceived, most of these movies were not meant for 3d viewing, compared to James Cameron’s Avatar which was born and bred as a 3d experience. Continue reading…
