Hit animated movies MONSTERS UNIVERSITY and FROZEN and will go head-to-head at the 41st annual Annie Awards after picking up 10 nominations each.

The films will battle for the night's main prize, Best Animated Feature, alongside A Letter to Momo, Despicable Me 2, Ernest & Celestine, The Croods and The Wind Rises.

The Croods, about a dysfunctional Stone Age family, also looks set for a big night - it has received nods in nine categories, as has Despicable Me 2.

Directing legend Steven Spielberg, who co-founded the DreamWorks Animation studio in 1994, will receive the Winsor McCay Award for career achievement alongside Phil Tippett, a visual effects artist who worked with the filmmaker on 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park.

The Annie Award winners will be announced in a ceremony at the University of California's Royce Hall in Los Angeles on 1 February (14).
