Despicable Me, How to Train Your Dragon, The Illusionist, Tangled, and Toy Story 3 were all nominated today by the International Animated Film Society. In the overall nomination count, Dragon leads Toy Story by a margin of 15 to 3, but that is because Disney and Pixar decided not to cooperate with the Annie Awards process in protest of what the companies feel is unfair voting by its competitors.

Certainly the Academy’s three eventual Oscar nominees will come from the Annies’ list of five. The question is, which two will end up falling short?
