If you happened to miss the event last month the International Animated Film Society finally posted the 2014 Annie Award ceremony on youtube. The event had many laughs, surprises and appreciation everywhere for the nominees and winners of each category. Personally, my favorite scene was the ice king’s acceptance speech for Adventure Time. Tom Kenny who voices the ice king had no problem entertaining the crowd. I’m already looking forward to next years award ceremony as well as the new animated movies being launched throughout this year.
With the Oscars underway in just a few hours it is predicted tonight Frozen will win best animation. If Frozen wins best animation it will be the first award Disney will take home in that category. Not only will Disney take home this award but it is predicted tonight that Frozen will be the highest grossing animated film of all time. Just a couple days ago Frozen surpassed The Lion King, which accumulated a worldwide gross of 987 million. Frozen currently has a 1 billion worldwide gross today but the leading contender is Toy Story 3 which is 63 million dollars ahead of Frozen. If Frozen surpasses Toy Story 3 it will be a huge accomplishment not only for Disney but for the fans, animators, writers and other companies that have been a huge support for Disney throughout the years.
