‘Kung Fu Panda’ Clobbers ‘Wall-e’ at Annie Awards

31 January 2009 2:42 PM, PST | | See recent newsinfilm news »

Kung Fu Panda shut out its competition in every major feature film category at the 36th annual Annie Awards celebrating 2008’s best animated movies.  The DreamWorks Animation pic bested critic favorite Wall-e and other nominee Bolt for “Best Feature.”

The surprise win is the first time DreamWorks has beaten a Pixar film for the top prize since 2001’s Shrek over Pixar’s Monster’s Inc.  Panda took home fifteen statues Friday night and tied for the most wins ever.  The Annie Award has matched the “Best Animated Feature” category at the Academy Awards every single year but one.

I thoroughly enjoyed Kfp, but I was under the impression that Wall-e was a better film all around.  While DreamWorks Animation has stepped up its game in recent years, Pixar’s animation was exceptional.  This is a major upset, especially since Wall-e went home with nothing.  The Oscar race just got even more interesting. »
