Pixar's 'Coco' Sweeps 45th Annie Awards.

"Coco", Pixar's colorful journey through the Land of the Dead, swept the 45th Annie Awards on Saturday, winning in every category in which it was nominated, picking up 11 trophies overall, including best animated feature.

"Coco" faced off against another Pixar picture, "Cars 3", as well as two from DreamWorks Animation — "The Boss Baby" and "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie" — and Illumination's "Despicable Me 3" for the top studio award. Of these, only "The Boss Baby" also reaped an Oscar bid for Best Animated Feature.

Coming on the heels its Golden Globe win for animated feature, the Annies victory cements “Coco’s” position as the frontrunner in the category for the Oscars.
