Film tops the animation award show...
Wreck-It Ralph built itself some momentum heading toward the Oscars. The Walt Disney Animation Studios film won Best Animated Feature at the 40th Annual Annie Awards, along with four other wins (Best Directing, Best Music, Best Voice Acting and Best Writing). The Annie Awards often are an indicator of Oscar wins; last year's Annie Award winner Rango went on to win the Oscar.
Other winners included Robot Chicken's DC Comics special for Best GA Television Production, Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem for Best Animated Special Production and Journey for Best Video Game. Check out the winner list below:
