After being defeated last year ("Kung Fu Panda" topped "WALL-E"), Pixar returned to the throne of the Annie Awards this time around, with Pete Docter's "Up" taking best animated feature at the ceremony last night. The Annies did spread the wealth quite significantly for the landmark year in animated cinema, with "Coraline," "Fantastic Mr. Fox," "The Princess and the Frog" and "Monsters vs. Aliens" each taking home trophies as well.
