"What? Why?" tweeted a fan on the official page of the awards, and most fans seconded the thought. "How To Train Your Dragon OR Frozen 2 has been robbed! Honestly! I didn't like TS4 compared to 1,2, and 3! So sad! " said another. "Did you think it should've been frozen 2??" wrote a fan.
For some, 'Abominable' deserved the award. "Abominable deserved it a thousand times more" tweeted a fan. For some, it was a great choice. "Congratulations Ya'll and Best Wish to ALL the Toys!!" said a fan. "About Time," wrote another. "Nostalgic choice" opined another fan.
