LOS ANGELES — The 43rd annual Annie Awards were a joyous affair for "Inside Out."
The Pixar release won the Annies' top honor and 10 awards altogether at the ceremony Saturday evening at UCLA's Royce Hall in Los Angeles. Along with best animated feature, the film won best director for Peter Docter, best screenplay for Meg LeFauve and Josh Cooley, and outstanding achievement in voice acting for Phyllis Smith, who voiced Sadness.
The wins further solidify "Inside Out" as the Oscar favorite. "The Good Dinosaur" gave Pixar an 11th Annie award for best animated effects in an animated movie.
Another Academy Awards nominee, "The Revenant," earned outstanding character animation in a live production for its bear that mauled Leonardo Dicaprio's character.
The Oscar-nominated short film "World of Tomorrow" took the short subject award.
