"Brave," "Rise of the Guardians," and "Wreck-It Ralph" are the top nominees at the Annie Awards honoring the best achievements in film and television animation, presented by the International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood. The three films earned 10 nominations apiece, including Best Animated Feature.

Close behind with eight bids are "ParaNorman" and "Hotel Transylvania." Rounding out the Animated Feature category are Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie," "The Pirates! Band of Misfits," and the GKIDS indie "The Rabbi's Cat."

Last year's top Annie Award winner was "Rango," which also won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. In the last 10 years, the Oscar winner has matched the Annie winner seven times.

In 2010, "How to Train Your Dragon" won at the Annie and lost the Oscar to "Toy Story 3." In 2008, "Kung Fu Panda" defeated eventual Oscar-winner "WALL-E." And in 2006, "Cars" finished ahead of Oscar-winner "Happy Feet."
