‘Dragon’ dominates Annie Award nominations

Posted by · 8:52 am · December 6th, 2010

It was cute of the Annies to throw “Tangled” and “Toy Story 3” a bone in the Best Animated Feature, directing and screenplay categories this year, but the absence of Disney product in virtually every other field is clearly evidence of a reaction to the studio withdrawing from the organization earlier this summer.
