Tonight, film critic Leonard Maltin and voice actors Pinky and the Brain, urm, Uh, I mean Rob Paulsen and Mau­rice LaMarche are hand­ing out the Annies at UCLA’s Royce Hall. For 40 years this annual event rec­og­nizes the best in ani­ma­tion from around the world.

Through most of the night, things look pretty well split up between the big stu­dios, with one award going to Dream­Works, the next to Pixar, then to Para­Nor­man, and then to Dis­ney. But when the big awards came down, it was all Dis­ney, with Wreck-It Ralph pulling in Best Music, Voice Act­ing, Direct­ing and Best Fea­ture. Dis­ney short Paper­man won for best ani­mated short.
