Annie Awards: 2010 Nominations
ASIFA-Hollywood announced their nominations for the 38th Annual Annie Awards this past week.
The essential animation blog, Cartoon Brew, has a complete list of the nominations.
If you like controversy, be sure to read the comments, too!
A couple of people with comic book connections popped up on the list of nominees.
Stephen DeStefano, artist on Lucky In Love from Fantagraphics, is up for Character Design in a Television Production for his work on the Cartoon Network series Sym-Bionic Titan.
Phil Hester and Andy Kuhn’s Image Comic Firebreather, the Cartoon Network original movie that aired at the end of November, got itself two nominations. In the category Production Design in a Television Production, Barry Jackson is one of the nominees. In the category Directing in a Television Production, director Peter Chung was nominated as well.
In the category of Writing in a Television Production, a whole bunch of writers share credit for Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III. One of them is Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer for DC Comics.
Also in the same category, Billy Kimball & Ian Maxtone-Graham were nominated for The Simpsons episode, “Stealing First Base.” Maxtone-Graham also worked on the Beavis And Butt-Head TV series and wrote some BaB-H comics for Marvel Comics.
And finally, the Nickelodeon super-hero comedy Fanboy & Chum Chum is one of the nominees for Best Animated Television Production for Children. The series, about “two energetic super fans of science fiction and fantasy,” was created by Eric Robles, who did design work on a series that I worked on as well. Good job, Eric and best of luck!
The Annie winners will be announced on February 5, 2011.
