Go here for a complete list of winners (and nominees).
I am very surprised (and pleased) about Robot Chicken and Futurama's wins. I am also very glad that Eric Goldberg's talents were rewarded; Louis really was a great, well-designed and -animated character. Also, unexpectedly, Prep and Landing received several awards.
Congratualtions to Disney, Pixar, and all of the other winners at this year's Annie Awards!
