The Wind Rises Won Best Writing at The 41st Annie Awards

The Annie Awards is widely recognized as the Oscars counterpart of animation, where The Wind Rises was nominated for three categories: Writing in an Animated Feature Production for Hayao Miyazaki, Character Animation in a Feature Production for Kitaro Kosaka, and Best Animated Feature.

Frozen topped the occasion with four wins including Best Animated Feature – with ten nominations there was one huge award that got away, which was Writing for an Animated Feature and it was awarded to Hayao Miyazaki.

The presenters were baffled that no one came to pick up the award – quite reminiscent of Miyazaki’s absence for his Oscar win in 2002.
