This is how bad things have gotten at Disney...

Disney SHUT OUT of Animation Awards
for the First Time Since 1992!
Disney and Pixar didn't get a single nom for Best Animated Feature at the Annie Animation Awards, for the first time since its inception in 1992. This after a string of critical and commercial failures like Lightyear, Strange World, and Wish.
Has Disney lost the home game?
For the first time since the Best Animated Feature award was introduced at the Annie Awards in 1992, neither Disney nor Pixar received a nomination in this category for the 2024 awards. This unprecedented situation occurred despite the release of several potential contenders from Disney and Pixar last year, including "Wish" and "Elemental." This development might reflect a challenging phase for Disney and Pixar, especially considering the mixed reviews and performances of their recent releases like "Elemental" and "Wish." The last time Pixar won the Annie for Best Animated Feature was in 2020 with "Soul," and the last Disney movie to win was "Zootopia" in 2016. The winners of this year's Annie Awards will be announced on February 17.
