The annual Annie Awards honoring the best in animation are no sure-fire Oscar indicator. Disney and Pixar have had their issues with the voting blocs and ways the awards are handled and have turned against them in the past.
But five Annies went to “Wreck-It Ralph,” a Disney NOT Pixar production. The short film attached to that in theaters, “Paperman,” won the best theatrical short award. No complaints from the Mouse this time.
