America's number one movie TANGLED and TOY STORY 3 have been nominated for 2010 Annie Awards, even though Disney bosses behind the films announced they'd be boycotting the animation prizegiving earlier this year (10).
Despicable Me, How to Train Your Dragon and The Illusionist have also been selected for the Best Animated Feature of the Year.
Disney/Pixar chiefs withdrew from the International Animated Film Society, which is behind the prizegiving, in August (10), due to judging concerns.
Toy Story 3 is the clear favourite to land the award and has been tipped for an Oscar Best Picture nomination by many top pundits.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
