NEW YORK (AP) - The DreamWorks sequel “How to Train Your Dragon 2” topped the 42nd Annie Awards, taking best feature at the annual honors for animation.

In the Saturday night ceremony hosted at the Royce Hall on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, “How to Train Your Dragon” won five awards in all. It also took best director for Dean DeBlois, as well as prizes for feature character design, storyboarding and music.

“Dragon” bested Disney’s top contender, the superhero tale “Big Hero 6.” But the film that preceded “Hero” in theaters, “Feast,” won best short film.

Warner Bros.’ acclaimed but Oscar-snubbed “The Lego Movie” won for the Annie best feature writing.

“How to Train Your Dragon 2” will head to the Feb. 22 Oscars as the best-animation favorite.
