The feature films that inspired two of McFarlane Toys' exclusive lines are raking in the nominations and awards this season. Tim Burton's Corpse Bride and Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit are in the running for the Oscar for Best Animated Feature and will duke it out Sunday, March 5.
But that's not all -- not even close. On Saturday, Feb. 4, the 33rd Annual Annie Awards, presented by the International Animated Film Society, honored the year's finest in film, television, short subjects and gaming.
The big winner was Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit, picking up a whopping 10 awards (out of 16 total nominations):Best Animated FeatureAnimated EffectsCharacter AnimationCharacter Design in an Animated Feature ProductionDirecting in an Animated Feature ProductionMusic in an Animated Feature ProductionProduction Design in an Animated Feature ProductionStoryboarding in an Animated Feature ProductionVoice Acting in an Animated Feature ProductionWriting in an Animated Feature ProductionCorpse Bride took home the UbIwerks Award for Technical Achievement, and was also nominated for Best Animated Feature, Best Character Design and Best Directing.
