‘Brave’ Up For 8 Annie Awards!

With the new year swiftly approaching, awards season is finally kicking into gear; Disney recently began a for-your-consideration campaign for Brave, and now the film has received its first award nominations at the 40th annual Annie Awards.

The International Animated Film Society revealed the nominations this morning. Pixar’s latest is nominated in eight categories, including thrice in Character Animation in a Feature Production, bringing it to a total of ten nominations:

Best Animated Feature
Brave – Pixar Animation Studios

Animated Effects in an Animated Production
Bill Watral, Chris Chapman, Dave Hale, Keith Klohn, Michael K. O’Briwn – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios

Character Animation in a Feature Production
Dan Nguyen – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios
Jaime Landes – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios
Travis Hathaway – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios

Music in an Animated Feature Production
Patrick Doyle, Mark Andrews, Alex Mandel – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios

Production Design in an Animated Feature Production
Steve Pilcher – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios

Voice Acting in an Animated Feature Production
Kelly MacDonald as Merida – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios

Writing in an Animated Feature Production
Mark Andrews, Steve Purcell, Brenda Chapman, Irene Mecchi – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios

Editorial in an Animated Feature Production
Nicholas A. Smith, ACE, Robert Graham Jones, ACE, David Suther – Brave – Pixar Animation Studios

La Luna was nominated for Best Animated Short Subject last year, hence its omission – Partysaurus Rex, however, is nowhere to be seen.

Since Brave was a solid, but not stellar success with critics, it’ll be interesting to see how it fares against this year’s strong competition. Check back after the Annie Awards ceremony is held on February 2.

    WRECK-IT RALPH” is going to win. It shares the most nominations (10) with “BRAVE” and “RISEGUARDIANS” but, along with “PARANORMAN”, is the only one with Picture, Director, and Writing nominations.
