For the second time since the Annie Awards’ Best Animated Feature prize was established in 1992, a woman-directed film has received the top honor.
The Annie Awards are the Oscars of the animation industry. Vicky Jenson was the first woman to co-helm an Annie winner for Best Animated Feature (Shrek). She is now joined by Frozen‘s Jennifer Lee, the first woman director to win the prize from Disney Studios.
Frozen also picked up trophies for its superlative direction, voice acting, music, and production design.
