‘Wreck-It Ralph’ sweeps 40th Annie Awards

By Xingye Li,

Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph won five trophies in the 40th annual Annie Awards, including the best animated feature and best director for Rich Moore. Disney’s Paperman also won best animated short subject.

Wreck-It Ralph is a story of a video-game villain who wants to be a hero. The film, with John C.Reilly as the major role of Ralph, also won the award for best voice acting for Alan Tudyk as King Candy, best screenplay and best music, reported Hollywood Reporter.

According to The New York Times, Disney hasn’t won the best animated feature at the Annies since 1998, when Mulan was named best feature. Pixar and DreamWorks Animation have dominated best features since then. Wreck-It Ralph also was nominated for an Oscar, and it may help Disney Animation to get its first Oscar for best animated feature.

Other Oscar nominated films didn’t receive as much recognition at the Annies. Pixar’s Brave took home two Annies for Production Design and Editorial. Focus Feature’s ParaNorman received awards for character animation and character design. Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie and British film Pirates: Bands of Misfits didn’t receive anything at the Annies.
