"Kung Fu Panda 2" is up for 12 awards, while "Puss in Boots" and "Rango" were nominated for nine, "Winnie the Pooh" earned eight nods and "Cars 2" received seven nominations.
"All of the major animation studios are represented, as are some of the independent productions from Europe and South America," Frank Gladstone, president of ASIFA-Hollywood which bestows the Annie Awards, said in a statement Monday. "This certainly is a testament to the wide reach and appeal of animation and the people who create it."
Winners will be announced at the 39th annual Annie Awards ceremony Feb. 4 at UCLA's Royce Hall, in Los Angeles.
