Coraline leads the Annie Awards nominations

The zoetrope-shaped
Annie Award trophy

Henry Selick's Coraline is the favorite animation for the 37th Annie Awards, a prize given by the International Animated Film Society. The english feature received 10 nominations, beating Up and The Princess and the Frog. In this year edition of Anima Mundi, the audience had the opportunity to see a special presentation of Coraline and have a conversation with the animation crew of Laika Studio, who worked on the puppets and de stop motion animation of the movie. Here in the blog, you can see how was the presentation here, and also check an interview with Scott Tom, one of the coordinators of the studio, here.


Other contenders for the Best Animated Feature prize include The Fantastic Mr. Fox and Cloudy With a Chance of MeatBalls.
