The controversial Annie Awards announced their winners last night. Dreamworks won this years ongoing feud with Pixar, as How To Train Your Dragon swept up 10 awards, including Best Picture.

Brad Bird, Eric Goldberg and Matt Groening received the The Winsor McCay award, highlighting animation leaders in the industry.
