The Incredibles dominate The Annies



Story by: Jack Foley

PIXAR'S latest animated adventure, The Incredibles, completely dominated this year's Annies, picking up all the main prizes at Hollywood's animation awards.

The superhero adventure won a total of ten awards, trouncing Shrek 2, which went home empty-handed.

The Incredibles was named best animated feature, while Brad Bird won best director, writer and voice actor for his role as designer, Edna Mode.

The awards haul means that the film is now favourite to land the best animated film category at this year's Oscars, where it is up against Shrek 2 and Shark Tale.

Despite losing out on a prize, however, the makers of Shrek 2 can seek some comfort in the fact that their green ogre performed better at the box office, emerging as the most popular film of 2004.

Shrek 2 took $881m (£468m) around the world, compared with $576m (£306m) for The Incredibles.

In other animated categories not won by Pixar, Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants won the best animated TV show (ahead of the cinema release of the film in the UK), while King of the Hill won two prizes, including one for actress Brittany Murphy's voice work.

The awards, which are presented by the International Animated Film Society, were handed out at a Los Angeles ceremony on Sunday, January 30, 2005.
