The nominees for this year’s Annie Awards have been announced, and new arrival Coco leads the pack, which includes Cars 3 and The Boss Baby, with 13 nods.

As Variety reports, Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina’s Day Of The Dead-inspired film is nominated for best animated feature, character design, production design, and voice acting, among other superlatives. The Breadwinner, from Irish animation studio Cartoon Saloon, ranks seconds in overall nominations, earning 10 nods, including Best Animated Feature—Independent. But DreamWorks is the big winner as far as studios go; Variety says Universal Studios subsidiary garnered 22 nominations, including six for The Boss Baby and three for Captain Underpants. DreamWorks’ animated TV projects were also noteworthy, as Trollhunters earned six nominations. Unsurprisingly, Disney had 18 nominations—14 for TV shows, and three for Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, a short that’s already overstayed its welcome. And let’s not forget Pixar, which scored 15 nominations.


Elsewhere, Big Mouth, BoJack Horseman, Rick And Morty, Robot Chicken, and Samurai Jack will all compete for Best General Audience TV/Broadcast Production, a title that’s surely as prestigious as it is unwieldy.
