“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” has been named the best animated feature of 2018 at the 46th Annual Annie Awards, sweeping all seven categories in which it was nominated and giving the film a prize that has predicted the Oscar animated-feature winner more than 70 percent of the time. The awards were handed out at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus on Saturday night by the Los Angeles branch of the International Animated Film Association, ASIFA-Hollywood. In addition to winning Best Animated Feature, “Spider-Man” picked up awards for its directing, writing, character animation, character design, production design and editorial. “Incredibles 2” came into the show with the most nominations, 11, but only won two, while “Ralph Breaks the Internet” had 10 nominations and received one award.

It is the first film from Sony Pictures Animation to win the top award at the Annies, which over the years has been dominated by Disney/Pixar (eight wins for Disney, nine for Pixar) and DreamWorks Animation (four wins). “Mary Poppins Returns,” a live-action film with an extended animated sequence, won two Annie Awards. Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs” received one award, for Bryan Cranston’s voice work. In the television categories, “Hilda” was the big winner with three, while “BoJack Horseman” and “Disney’s Mickey Mouse” received two each.
