Best animated feature, 'How To Train Your Dragon'

“How to Train Your Dragon” was a risky project for DreamWorks Animation in that it was a departure from the studio’s traditional toon comedies with a story that hinged on a father-son relationship.

“We all felt really good about the film and the fact that it was so warmly received by audiences even though it didn’t fit past DreamWorks models,” said “Dragon” helmer Dean DeBlois. “It really opens the doors to doing this kind of film.”
