Story by Jack Foley

DISNEY-Pixar’s Coco leads the nominations for the 45th annual Annie Awards, with 10 nods.

The film, set around the popular Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertoswill, will vie for the top Best Animated Feature category along with Fox’s Captain Underpants and The Boss Baby (both from DreamWorks Animation), as well as Disney’s Cars 3 (Pixar) and Universal’s Despicable Me 3.

Last year, Disney’s Zootropolis won the top prize at the Annies on its way to the same win at the Oscars.

The Annies winner has taken Oscar gold in 11 out of the 16 years since the Best Animated Feature category was introduced at the Academy Awards.

This year’s winners in a total of 36 categories will be revealed in a ceremony on February 3, 2018.
