Disney Gets Lots of Nominations for the 36th Annual Annie Awards

The Annie Awards are the most prestigous award for animation. This years Annie Awards will be January 30th, 2009. According to Wikipedia:


The Annie Awards is presented by the Los Angeles, California branch of the International Animated Film Association, ASIFA-Hollywood since 1972. Originally designed to celebrate lifetime or career contributions to animation in the fields of producing, directing, animation, design, writing, voice acting, sound and sound effects, etc., in 1992 it began to honor animation as a whole, and created the category of Best Animated Feature.


Disney's top was 2nd and 3rd for total nominations with Bolt (9) and Wall-e (8.) Another Disney production, a short film called Glago’s Guest, also won big recognition in the short film category. The list is really long but be sure to check it out on The Animation Blog .

Yay for Disney/Pixar !! Bolt was a very key production as it was the first production from the Pixar/Disney team. I am so glad it is getting such great recognition. Hopefully this is a sign of great more things to come from Disney from this point on…it would be great if Disney could turn its image around :)

Be sure to check out this clip of Glago's Guest:
