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.
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.
