Hello, toon fans. The Annie Awards nominations are upon us, honoring the best of the best in animation this year. More often than not, titles nominated here go on to garner Oscar nods, so if you’re an awards season junkie, you might want to pay attention. There aren’t many surprises here, as far as I can see. I had a moment of panic when I saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse wasn’t mentioned anywhere here, but then I realized that came out in 2018. It’s been a long year, folks.

The Annie Awards will take place on Saturday, January 25 at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus. Here are the nominees.
