The rest of America can have their Super Bowl tomorrow, but the animation world’s big night is TONIGHT. Settle in to watch the livestream of the 42nd annual Annie Awards from the comfort of your couch. The ceremonies will be livestreamed in the player below from Los Angeles beginning at 7pm PT/10pm ET:

Here are this year’s nominations. The feature category promises to be especially interesting to watch this year. Will the Oscar-rejected LEGO Movie vindicate itself with a win, or will the leading Oscar contender How to Train Your Dragon 2 solidify its Oscar hopes with a win? A number of films could also upset including Big Hero 6, Boxtrolls, and Song of the Sea.

Laika’s The Boxtrolls leads the pack with 13 nominations, followed by 10 nods for DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 2, and seven apiece for Cartoon Saloon’s Song of the Sea and Disney’s Big Hero 6.

And let’s not forget that nearly half of the categories are devoted to television animation. Disney’s Mickey Mouse shorts have 8 nominations, followed by Pixar’s Toy Story That Time Forgot special with seven noms, and Disney’s Wander Over Yonder with six nods.
