Vote!

Also, note: the Oscars ignored Frozen II and Abominable, two major-studio films that were recognized by most of the guilds. (Indeed, Frozen II is nominated for more Annie Awards this year than any other film -- but it's not nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. The five next-most-nominated Annie contenders *are* nominated for the Oscar, though.)

7 nominations

  • Klaus -- Best Animated Feature, Directing, Production Design, Storyboarding, Character Design, Character Animation, Editing

6 nominations

  • Toy Story 4 -- Best Animated Feature, Writing, Voice Acting (Tony Hale), Visual Effects, Editing, Music

6 nominations in 5 categories

  • How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World -- Best Animated Feature, Writing, Production Design, Character Animation (x2), Editing
  • I Lost My Body -- Best INDIE Feature, Directing, Writing, Storyboarding (x2), Music

4 nominations

  • Abominable -- Production Design, Character Design, Voice Acting (Tenzing Norgay Trainor), Visual Effects
  • Weathering with You -- Best INDIE Feature, Directing, Writing, Visual Effects

2 nominations

  • The Addams Family -- Production Design, Character Design
  • The Secret Life of Pets 2 -- Voice Acting (Jenny Slate), Editing
  • Spies in Disguise -- Character Design, Music

1 nomination

  • Away -- Music
  • Bunuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles -- Best INDIE Feature
  • Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus -- Voice Acting (Richard Horvitz)
  • Okko's Inn -- Best INDIE Feature

The winners will be announced January 25.

And the winners are...

  • Klaus -- Best Animated Feature, Directing, Production Design, Storyboarding, Character Design, Character Animation, Editing
  • I Lost My Body -- Best INDIE Feature, Writing, Music
  • Frozen 2 -- Voice Acting (Josh Gad), Visual Effects

So basically Netflix movies won all but two of the feature-film awards, and Klaus won every single award it was nominated for. (And the two nominations that I Lost My Body did *not* win were won by Klaus. Basically Frozen 2 -- which started the evening with the most nominations -- won only in the categories where it wasn't facing any competition from Netflix. And Frozen 2 isn't even nominated for the Oscar! Toy Story 4 is, though, and it has been sweeping all the guild awards so far -- but it didn't win a single Annie award!)

And the winners are...

  • Missing Link -- Visual Effects in an Animated Feature, Animated Character in an Animated Feature
  • Toy Story 4 -- Created Environment in an Animated Feature
  • Frozen II -- Effects Simulations in an Animated Feature

So basically the three animated films with the most nominations won at least one award each. Two of those films are also nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. And the film that won the *most* Visual Effects Society awards has not won any other guild awards.

And the winner is... Toy Story 4.

So the guilds are all in for Toy Story 4, except for the Visual Effects Society, which leans towards Missing Link, and the Annie awards, which lean towards the Netflix releases Klaus and I Lost My Body. In other words, everyone is going with Toy Story 4 except for people who actually *work in animation*. Since the Oscar winner is voted on by the entire Academy and not just its animation branch, this might not bode well for anyone who was hoping that the Academy would get out of its Disney rut.
