LOS ANGELES (AP) — Disney’s “Frozen” topped the animation honors at the 41st Annie Awards, taking home five trophies, including best animated feature.

The 3-D film, about a magically icy princess and her sister, won best directing for Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee at Saturday night’s Annies, which are presented by the International Animated Film Society. It also conquered music, production design and voice acting categories, the latter for star Josh Gad.

“Frozen,” which has earned more than $864 million globally, was up against “Despicable Me 2,” ”A Letter to Momo,” ”Ernest & Celestine,” ”Monsters University,” ”The Croods” and “The Wind Rises.”

Live-action films also scored Annies, including “Pacific Rim” for animated effects and “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” for character animation.

For television, Fox’s “Futurama” won best general-audience animated show.
