    HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LEADS ANNIE WITH 15 NOMS


    DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon dominated the nominations list for the 38th annual Annie Awards. Annie Awards is a prestigious international recognition on the years best of the best in the animation movie. Organized by the International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood, once again, the nomination list has churned up some controvery yet again.

    With How to Train Your Dragon garnered 15 nominations, there are some outcry over Pixar’s Toy Story 3 which only managed a distant 3 nominations. That’s weird – since Toy Story 3 has an almost 100% universal acclaimed and is one of those that will received a nod for Best Picture in the upcoming Academy awards.

    Earlier this year, Disney and Pixar announced that they would no longer join the Annie Awards because of their concerns over how the event is to be judged. Apparently, anyone who bought a membership is eligible to vote and for that practice has given DreamWorks a huge advantage over the years. Nevertheless, it is important to note that 2008’s Wall-E lost out to Kung Fu Panda but 2009 saw Pixar’s Up into the victory.

    According to THR:
    ASIFA-Hollywood president Antran Manoogian said that while anyone can join ASIFA, only animation professionals are eligible to vote under a new rule established for this year's competition.
