    Did a search for Annie’s thread and didnt find one. (?)

    ‘Rango’ Takes Best Animated Film At The Annie Awards
    News  by Kevin Jagernauth | February 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

     

    While it’s pretty much an inevitability that “Rango” will take Best Animated Film at the Oscars in a few weeks, the film received another boost this weekend at the Annie Awards.

     

    Beating a field of ten including fellow Academy Award contenders “A Cat In Paris,” “Chico & Rita,” “Kung Fu Panda 2,” and “Puss In Boots,” the Gore Verbinski-directed, Johnny Depp-starring surreal, quasi-western took home the big prize at the show. Since its inception in 1992, the Annie Awards winner has only missed matching the evenual Oscar winner three times — so, we bet Verbinski is starting to get that acceptance speech written now. “Rango” also took writing, editing, character design and the award for “favorite” film as well. However, it was Jennifer Yuh Nelson who took the Best Directing prize for “Kung Fu Panda 2.” Meanwhile, “The Adventures of Tintin” wasn’t completely shut out, nabbing a prize for John Williams‘ score.

    Take a look at the full list of winners below. And if you’re making your Oscar picks, “Rango” seems like a sure bet at this point. [via Deadline]

    Take THAT, Chico and Rita.  Still think Gnomeo and Juliet would make a better Plan B candidate vs. Rango.

    Is “Chico and Rita” not a good film? The animation looks so delightfully inspired by Cuban culture, very mature too. I hope I get to see it soon.

    Anyways, I’m excited to see “Rango” taking the big prize here. This bodes well for its Oscar chances, which I feared for after losing so many awards to “Tintin.”
