I always love it when the Annie Award nominations come out—invariably they feature something that hasn’t even premiered yet. I mean, sure, I understand that this is how these things work. I do. But as much as I’m looking forward to A Miser Brothers Christmas on ABC Family this weekend, it cracks me up to see it as a nominee for Best Animated Television Production Produced for Children. I’d just like to see it first, is all. Heh.
Kung Fu Panda leads all films with 17 nominations. Bolt was second with 9 nods, and WALL-E third with 8. Those three, along with $9.99 and Waltz with Bashir were tapped for Best Feature.
Well, I’ve at least seen the first three films on that list….
The Annie winners will be announced on January 30th, and until then we can all wildly speculate as to who will triumph. And also we can maybe go watch the nominees which haven’t actually come out yet. Ahem.
