Animation newbie Netflix was the big winner Saturday night at ASIFA-Hollywood’s 47th annual Annie Awards at UCLA’s Royce Hall, with “Klaus” and “I Lost My Body” taking top honors for Best Feature and Best Indie Feature.

In fact, Sergio Pablos’ innovative 2D Santa origin story led the pack with seven Annies (including directing, character animation, character design, production design, storyboarding, and editing), while Jérémy Clapin’s existential French thriller about a severed hand took home three awards (including writing and the exquisite score by Dan Levy).

Both “Klaus” and “I Lost My Body” are competing against Pixar’s frontrunning “Toy Story 4” in the Oscar race, which was blanked at the Annies. But then so was everything else, except Disney’s “Frozen 2” (shut out of the Oscar race), which earned two Annies for Feature FX and Voice Acting for Josh Gad’s lovable Olaf.

Disney was also victorious with “Avengers: Endgame” taking Best Live Action Character Animation (from Weta Digital). This provides a boost for Marvel’s VFX Oscar hopes, with Wednesday’s VES Awards as the next big hurdle.
