Is there a way to list through DWG and pick out let's say only the annotations and feed them into a geoprocessing tool?

Similar to below in a feature class...

for ds in datasets:
    #Finds polyline feature classes and appends to sde
    for poly in arcpy.ListFeatureClasses("Polyl*",feature_dataset=ds):
        arcpy.Append_management(poly,  .....   

I would like to pick out the annotations and feed them into the Import annotation tool. I can't seem to get it. The link below makes it look so easy but it doesn't work.

    What do you get if you try for anno in arcpy.ListFeatureClasses("*","Annotation",ds)? Have you tried arcpy.da.walk and describe the returned data to locate annotation feature classes? – Michael Stimson Jan 5 '18 at 5:13
