Rife as they are with studio politics, the Annie Awards can sometimes perversely turn against frontrunners in the animated Oscar race, but if you were looking for any such shake-ups this year, you were out of luck. Disney's all-but-certain Oscar winner "Frozen" was the night's big winner, taking five awards for Best Animated Feature, Direction, Music, Production Design and Voice Acting for Josh Gad's irrepressible summer-loving snowman.

But while the blockbuster fairytale was clearly a favorite, it wasn't a sweeper, as a number of other films got a piece of the pie. It's particularly sweet to see Hayao Miyazaki's allegedly final feature "The Wind Rises" receive an award for its delicate, poetic writing. Meanwhile, DreamWorks' heavily-campaigned "The Croods" took a trio of technical awards, while surprise Oscar omission "Monsters University" received two. (No such luck for "Despicable Me 2," which led the nominations, but was rewarded only for its broadcast commercial.)
