Damnit! RANGO Wins Annie Awards For Best Animated FeatureLook! Don’t get me wrong, I thought RANGO was an excellent movie but I was gunning for my favorite, KUNG FU PANDA 2 to win the 39th Annual Annie Awards and all the way to the Oscars but alas, RANGO won Annie instead and now it’s becoming a threat. I thought the fact that THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN got snubbed at the Oscars means more chance for Po to win on Sunday, Feb. 26, but if Annie is any indicator, then RANGO could steal the statuette that evening… Here are the 2012 ANNIE Awards, I only included the key categories..
