Nella notte sono stati assegnati a Los Angeles gli Annie Awards 2017, i premi destinati al mondo dell’intrattenimento cinematografico animato indetto dalla ASIFA-Hollywood (International Animated Film Association), quest’anno dominati da Zootropolis.

Il capolavoro animato Disney ha vinto i premi più importanti dell’edizione 2017, Zootropolis è risultato il miglior film d’animazione dell’anno, battuti colossi come Alla Ricerca di Dori e Kung Fu Panda 3, il premio per la miglior regia a Rich Moore e Byron Howard, ma non solo.

La regola non scritta porta di solito il vincitore della categoria Miglior Film Animato agli Annie a vincere l’Oscar nella medesima categoria, quindi in questo caso Zootropolis diventa l’indiziato numero uno all’ambita statuetta, sarà così anche Aquest’anno?
