Outstanding Achievement in Character Animation appears to be the only video game-related category at the Annie Awards. The event celebrates animation efforts across major mediums, including movies, TV, and video games.
Uncharted 4 won multiple awards at The Game Awards in December, including Best Performance (Nolan North for Nathan Drake) and Best Narrative. It’s nominated for the same award at the upcoming Game Developers Choice Awards and SXSW Awards.
Disney’s Zootopia won Best Animated Feature; the other nominees were Finding Dory, Kubo and the Two Strings, Kung Fu Panda 3, and Moana.
