‘Inside Out,’ ‘Good Dinosaur’ Lead Annie Award Nominations

1 December 2015 7:26 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For the first time ever, Pixar is getting awards competition from itself. The studio’s inventive summer blockbuster “Inside Out” and its warm-hearted recent release “The Good Dinosaur” led the nominees for animated feature at the 43rd annual Annie Awards slated for Feb. 6 at UCLA’s Royce Hall, with 14 and 10 bids, respectively.

Rounding out the field are the adult-themed stop-motion film “Anomalisa” from Paramount, Blue Sky’s nostalgic 3D reboot “The Peanuts Movie” and Aardman Animations’ “Shaun the Sheep the Movie,” a film based on the popular British TV series. All have five nominations.

Inside Out,” which had been an early favorite to sweep several awards this year, may face some serious competition not only from stablemate “Dinosaur,” but also from the edgy “Anomalisa,” which picked up several nominations for the independent Spirit Awards, including feature, director and screenplay.

Asifa-Hollywood, the organization behind the Annie Awards, split the animated feature category in two this year, »
