As feared, the 38th Annual Annie Awards, held last night in Los Angeles, was largely a farcical
celebration of "Gold Sponsor" DreamWorks Animation SKG.
Toy Story 3 didn't take home any of the (only three) awards for which it was nominated, the same fate as befell WALL-E two years ago, before Disney and Pixar decided to withdraw support from the Annies due to its corrupt voting rules.
Get this: In all but one of the categories in which a DreamWorks project was nominated, DreamWorks won. Two of the categories had only DreamWorks nominees.
Day & Night won for Best Animated Short Subject, but only because DreamWorks didn't have a contender in that race. They let it win.
Props to Pixar for not playing along with this shameful charade. The animation community deserves better.
