ASIFA Hollywood hosted an elegant, amusing evening for the animation community, February 4, at the Alex Theater in Glendale. High-energy host Tom Kenny (a.k.a. the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants) kept a lively pace during the 33rd Annual Annie Awards. His quick wit was appreciated as it kept the full house laughing and the show on time. The evening was especially good for Nick Park and his Aardman Animations, who took home 10 awards, including Best Animated Feature. Highlights of the evening also included recognition of Winsor McCay Award recipients: veteran animators Cornelius Cole III and Fred Crippen and legendary Bambi background artist Tyrus Wong, as well as a tribute to Pixar’s Joe Ranft, who passed away in August, 2005. Watching Ranft in the video tribute pitching storyboards, performing goofy voices, and showing us how much he loved his work both celebrated storyboard artists and underscored how deeply he is missed.THE WINNERSBest Animated Video Game: Ultimate Spiderman, Activision/TreyarchBest Animated Home Entertainment Production: Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch, DisneyToon StudiosCharacter Design in an Animated Television Production: Ernie Gilbert – The Fairly OddParents “The Good Old Days”, NickelodeonCharacter Design in an Animated Feature Production: Nick Park Wallace & Gromit: the Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Aardman Animations Ltd./Dreamworks AnimationProduction Design in an Animated Television Production: Mike Moon, Craig McCracken, Dave Dunnet, Martin Ansolabehere Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends “A Lost Claus”, Cartoon Network StudiosProduction Design in an Animated Feature Production: Phil Lewis Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Aardman Animations Ltd./Dreamworks AnimationMusic in an Animated Television Production: James L.
