The wins further solidify "Inside Out" as the Oscar favourite. "The Good Dinosaur" gave Pixar an 11th Annie award for best animated effects in an animated movie.

Another Academy Awards nominee, "The Revenant," earned outstanding character animation in a live production for its bear that mauled Leonardo DiCaprio's character.

The Oscar-nominated short film "World of Tomorrow" took the short subject award.
