International Animated Film Society Award Nominations Include ‘Incredibles 2,’ ‘Ralph,’ and ‘Mary Poppins Returns’


Nominations are in for the 46th Annual Annie Awards and Disney has a big presence with Pixar’s Incredibles 2 and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Ralph Breaks the Internet scoring several nods. Mary Poppins Returns received nominations in three animated feature categories; character design, production design, and storyboarding, where it will go up against Incredibles 2, Ralph and other fully animated features. It was also nominated for character animation in a live-action production as well as for best animated special production, which could potentially reopen the discussion about what constitutes an animated feature. The full list of nominees follows: Best Animated Feature Early Man Aardman Animations Incredibles 2 Pixar Animation Studios Isle Of Dogs Fox Searchlight Pictures / Indian Paintbrush / American Empirical Pictures Ralph Breaks The Internet Walt Disney Animation Studios Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Sony Pictures Animation Best Animated Independent Feature Ce Magnifique Gâteau!
