Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stole the show at Saturday’s Annie Awards, ultimately taking home seven trophies, including best animated feature. The Sony Pictures Animation film won in every category in which it was nominated.
In addition to best animated feature, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse earned six other awards for direction (Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman), writing (Phil Lord and Rothman), character animation in an animated feature (David Han), character design (Shiyoon Kim), production design (Justin K. Thompson), and editorial (Bob Fisher, Andrew Leviton, and Vivek Sharma).
Next up on the awards circuit is the 91st Academy Awards, in which Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will face off against Incredibles 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Mirai, and Isle of Dogs for best animated feature film.
This year, the Academy changed its nominating procedures for the animated feature category. Now, any Academy member willing to join the nominating committee is eligible. The winner will be selected through a preferential ballot, similar to the best picture category.
The Oscars arrive on Sunday, Feb. 24.
