Providing a quick advance of where the Animated Feature category of the Oscars is heading, Disney Animation's "Frozen” and Pixar's “Monsters University” led the feature film nominations for the 41st Annie Awards nominations with 10 each, while Universal/Illumination's “Despicable Me 2″ and DreamWorks Animation's “The Croods” followed with nine. Filling out the seven slots were three 2-D foreign-language films: Gkids' “A Letter to Momo” (Japan) and “Ernest & Celestine” (France) and Japan's historic “The Wind Rises," possibly legendary Studio Ghibli founder Hayao Miyazaki's final film, released by Disney. (Our Studio Ghibli story is here.) The Annies sometimes but not always presage the Oscars. They went with "Wreck-It-Ralph" last year over "Brave," which took home the gold statue. This year, Disney totaled 31 noms in film and television, followed by DreamWorks Animation (19) and Pixar (18).
