Nominations Announced & Annie Awards

  |   Feature Films

(January, 2015)  Feb, 2015

 

Welp — I am just about caught up folks.
This is January’s entry, written in February — thank you for your patience.

 

As I’ve said, we had a wonderfully busy few months which culminated in January.
On the 15th, nominations were announced and we all watched with bated breath (except Tomm, who was too nervous — and instead, at lunch, went down to watch the ducks at the pond).

And, holy smokes…!!  Cartoon Saloon received its second Oscar®-nomination for SONG, going 2 for 2 — and GKIDS received 2 (for both SONG and THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA – which garners their/our team 6 nods in 6 years for THE SECRET OF KELLS, CAT IN PARIS, CHICO & RITA, ERNEST & CELESTINE and this year’s two nods for SONG and KAGUYA).

 

 

Amazing.

 

 

We continued the month on a high with a host of Europeans coming in for ASIFA-Hollywood’s 42 Annie Awards, as SONG OF THE SEA had earned 7 nominations including: Best Animated Film, Best Director, Best Writing, Best Editing, Best Music, Best Character Design & Best Production Design.
