Annie Awards

Last night was held the Annie awards (awards for animation productions, both tv and feature productions). Avatar won in the two categories it was nominated. Go Joaquim! You did splendid work not only in the finale but for the whole serie (the blimp battle between Zuko and Azula in Southern Raider? Brilliant!).
Also very glad to see Robot Chicken grabbing a few prizes too, and very surprised (though pleasantly) to see Kung Fu Panda sweeping almost everything. Sorry Wall-E! Loved the robots and their interactions, didn't care as much when humans were added into the mix. Personal preferences, ya know.

EDIT:
Elsa garagarza, background artist supervisor, storyboard artist, did the latest Avatar comic in Nick Magazine, all around awesome person, has done a very nice online interview. Reposting the link here. There are examples of some of her stunning bg work.

Just replace "Oompah band" with Zhao, and voila!

wow have to say I'm also surprised but super happy to see Kung Fu Panda win, I loved that film.

By the way did you see the english trailer for The Secret of Kells is up - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptXbPEHLwDs - Buena Vista have given it the Disney voice over treatment and done a bad cut so its not nearly as a nice as the french trailer. No word on release out side of Ireland/France yet but its getting some good press so fingers crossed.

Alright! Hope that means Secret of Kells will make it to this side of the pond, hopefully for more than just limited releases and festivals.

Oooh, man, I'm so excited about The Secret of Kells! It looks really amazing and the animation and style they chose is so beautiful!

I'm currently studying in Trinity College Dublin (the current home of the Book of Kells) and the Old Library giftshop has started selling the book version of the movie, so hopefully it will be announced in Irish press soon!

Hell yeah Avatar! I'm also pretty glad Kung Fu Panda won a lot. Personally, I enjoyed it, especially for its animation and design and story, far more than Wall-E.

Yeah you've got it pretty bad when you mentally project your characters and otherwise into other stuff. ;)

Didn't miss it by much, it happened last Friday. I'm also thrilled Joaquim won- he fully deserved it! Yay for Avatar snagging Annie Awards for the last year.
