Disney Snags 29 Annie Award Nominations

There are certain award shows that pretty much everyone knows about — ceremonies like the Oscars, the Emmys, and the Grammys. However, there are a number of other awards that people within the industry look forward to and hold in high regard, and one of those is the Annie Awards. The Annie Awards are accolades given out every year by the Los Angeles branch of the International Animated Film Association and have been happening since 1972.

This year, Disney snagged the second-highest number of nominations with a total of 29, trailing just behind Netflix.

While Disney did not get the most award nominations overall, its film Raya and the Last Dragon, led the pack for the most nominations for a single film with a whopping ten nominations. Raya was followed closely behind by another Disney film, which only premiered in theaters a few weeks ago, Encanto — which secured nine total nominations.
