LOS ANGELES (AP) — “How to Train Your Dragon” has swept the animation prizes at the Annie Awards, with the DreamWorks production winning 10 trophies including best picture at a ceremony boycotted by rival Disney.

Presented by the International Animated Film Society, the Annies often are a forecast for the animated-feature category at the Academy Awards. But “Toy Story 3,” from Disney’s Pixar Animation, remains the favorite for the Feb. 27 Oscars.

“Toy Story 3” was nominated for best-animated feature at the Annies, along with Disney’s “Tangled.” But the studio decided not to make any awards push for the Annies in a dispute over voting procedures, which Disney claims is stacked in favor of DreamWorks Animation movies.

Prizes for DreamWorks’ “Dragon” at Saturday night’s ceremony also included the voice-acting Annie for Jay Baruchel.
