The 40th annual Annie Awards, which recognize excellence in animation, were held last night and according to Film.com, Disney's "Wreck-It Ralph" dominated the proceedings, earning five Annies including Best Animated Feature.
The win follows "Wreck-It Ralph's" victory at the Golden Globes last month and cements the film's status as the frontrunner for the Best Animated Feature award at this year's Oscars. Pixar's "Brave," meanwhile, did manage to take home two Annies, but the one time presumed frontrunner now seems doomed to be an also-ran at the Academy Awards.
