First the Golden Globes ...


... and now the Annie.

DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon 2" was named best animated film of 2014 at the 42nd Annie Awards on Saturday evening at UCLA's Royce Hall. ...

So the DWA feature has now taken the Globe, and the Annie. Which probably sets it up for the "Best Animated Feature" at the Academy Awards, where they'll be handing out the Little Gold Men.

As for the rest:

ASIFA spread the tropies around, which is good. It was also good to see Don Lusk, now 101 years old, collect the Winsor McCay Award. (Mr. Lusk, if you don't know, was put on Walt's Naughty List for striking in 1941. Eventually he was let go by the House of Mouse, but it's nice to see the Statute of Limitations has taken affect. Congratulations, Don Lusk!)
