'Wreck-It Ralph' crushes Annie Awards rivals with 5 wins

"Wreck-It Ralph" dominated Saturday's Annie Awards, winning five of its 10 bids. It edged out Oscar rivals "Brave, "Frankenweenie," "The Pirates: Band of Misfits," and "ParaNorman" as well as "Hotel Transylvania," "Rise of the Guardians" and  "The Rabbis Cat" to claim Best Animated Picture. (See the full list of winners here.)

This Disney hit also won directing, writing, music and voice acting awards. It is the first time the studio has taken the top prize at these awards presented by the International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood since "Mulan" prevailed in 1998.

Since then, its partner Pixar and Dreamworks have dominated these kudos. In 2010, Disney boycotted the awards, citing concerns with the voting process and membership. 

With this strong showing, "Wreck-It Ralph" remains on track to be the first Disney film to win the Best Animated Feature Oscar.

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."

Disney also won Best Animated Short with "Paperman," beating, among others, Oscar rival "Maggie Simpson in The Longest Daycare." "Paperman" is far out in front in the Animated Short Oscar race

Pixar's "Brave" and Dreamworks' "Rise of the Guardians" had to settle for just two wins each, despite being tied for the most bids with "Wreck-It Ralph" at 10 apiece.
