There are wins, big wins and landslide wins and then there's the avalanche win that Frozen, the Disney studio's blockbuster had at the Anne Awards Feb. 1.

The Annies are the the International Animated Film Society's Oscars, and Frozen took home an astounding 15 trophies, including all of the major categories.

Frozen took home Annies for Best Animated Feature, Best Directing, Best Music, Best Production Design and the top prize in 11 other categories.

Oscar pundits may think that Frozen is skating toward a big night when the Academy Awards are handed out Sunday, March 2. But animators at the House of Mouse should recall 2013 when Disney's Wreck-It-Ralph won the top Annie while Pixar's Brave took home the Oscar.

The Disney studio took home some extra prizes on Feb. 1, including the top prizes for television animation for Sophia the First and the Halloween TV special Toy Story of Terror.
