With awards season in full force, it seems like each week brings a fresh set of winners from the various guilds, societies, associations, and what have you. This past weekend saw both the International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood’s Annie Awards and the Art Directors Guild Awards, with Rango, Hugo, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo emerging as the big winners. Check out the list of winners after the jump.

The 2012 Annies saw Disney returning to the fold after last year’s controversy, in which Disney withdrew over unfair judging procedures that seemed to favor DreamWorks. However, it was neither DreamWorks nor Disney that dominated the night, but Paramount’s Rango. The Gore Verbinski-directed adventure picked up five awards, for best animated feature, character design, writing, and editing, plus the new Members’ Favorite Award.

Kung Fu Panda 2 and The Adventures of Tintin earned two awards each. Neither DreamWorks’ Puss in Boots nor Pixar’s Cars 2 won any. Here’s the full list (via AnnieAwards.org).
