Annie Animation Awards

ASIFA-Hollywood is the Los Angeles chapter of The International Animated Film Society, which is

dedicated to the advancement of the art of animation. We sponsor screenings and seminars; host the Annie Awards- animation's highest honor; preserve films in danger of being lost to time, support animation education and journalism; and maintain an archive, library and museum of animation in Burbank, CA.

The Annie Awards has announced their finalists in the 37th Annual Annie Awards. That link also includes the nominees for that award. Speculative fiction has done fairly well in the motion picture arts awards, such as the Oscars Awards, and now in animated features and other productions. Of course, there is some overlap in these awards. Here is a selection of the recipients:

  • Best animated feature: Up - Pixar Animation Studios
  • Best home entertainment production: Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder — The Curiosity Company in association with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment
  • Best animated short subject: Robot Chicken: Star Wars 2.5 - ShadowMachine
