Several CalArtians have been nominated for the 46th annual Annie Awards, which honor achievement in the art of animation.

The International Animated Film Association announced the nominees on Monday, Dec. 3.

This year, the two leading films are Pixar’s “Incredibles 2,” directed by Brad Bird (Film/Video BFA 76), and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” directed by Rich Moore (Film/Video BFA 87), with 11 and 10 nominations, respectively.
