'Wreck-It Ralph' garners honors at Annie Awards

Walt Disney's video-game romp "Wreck-It Ralph" has won top animation honors at the Annie Awards.

The comedy hit about a video-game villain who wants to turn hero was named best animated feature at Saturday night's Annies, which are presented by the International Animated Film Society.

"Wreck-It Ralph" won out over a field that included "Brave," "Frankenweenie," "ParaNorman" and "Hotel Transylvania."

With a voice cast led by John C. Reilly, "Wreck-It Ralph" dominated the film categories, also winning Annies for director Rich Moore, voice co-star Alan Tudyk and for its music and screenplay.

Among live-action films, "The Avengers" won the Annie for animated effects, and "Life of Pi" won for character animation.

On the TV side, an episode of "Robot Chicken" won for best general audience animated show.

"I don't think that this makes me a real director, but I think it means I'm on my way," said Affleck, who won for just his third film behind the camera.

Malik Bendjelloul won the guild's documentary award for "Searching for Sugar Man," his study of the fate of critically acclaimed but obscure 1970s singer-songwriter Rodriquez. …
