Pixar Leaves Annies Empty-Handed

Lightning McQueen may have four Piston Cups under his belt, but it's looking increasingly improbable that Cars 2 will receive any honors this awards season beyond a handful of nominations.

The Annies may have been the best shot for Cars 2 to rack up some wins with its seven nominations, but it wasn't to be when the awards show took place Saturday night.

Pixar's short, La Luna was thought to have a significant shot at an Annie, but was beat out by Adam and Dog by Minkyu Lee. Unlike La Luna, however, Adam and Dog is not nominated for an Oscar.

One more interesting Annie Award twist: This is the first awards program this season that awarded Rango with Best Animated Feature where Tintin was also nominated.
