An incredible night for ‘The Incredibles’

GLENDALE, California: ‘The Incredibles’, the Pixar Animation Studios film about a family of superheros who save the day swept the 32nd annual Annie Awards on January 30, winning top honours for best animated feature, best directing and best voice acting for Brad Bird, the film’s director who voiced the diminutive seamstress Edna Mode.

The Annie Awards are presented by the International Animated Film Society to honour outstanding animation in television and film. Winners, including last year’s ‘Finding Nemo’, have typically gone on to win the Academy Award for best animated feature.

Two of the Annie nominees for best theatrical feature — ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Shrek 2’ — are nominated for an Oscar. — AP
