Well, the nominees for the 50th annual Annie Awards have been announced by ASIFA Hollywood. The following are the nominees for the three main categories that I'm most interested in:
- Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio
- Puss in Boots: The Last Wish
- The Sea Beast
- Turning Red
- Wendell & Wild
Best Indie Feature
- Little Nicholas, Happy As Can Be
- Marcel the Shell with Shoes On
- My Father's Dragon
Best Short Subject
- Black Slide
- Ice Merchants
- Love, Dad
- The Flying Sailor
Sadly, due to the lingering travel restrictions preventing me from attending animation festivals, this is the first time in recent memory that I haven't seen any of the nominees. On the bright side, I do have Netflix, so a private screening of Wendell & Wild and My Father's Dragon is in my future.
The awards ceremony will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at 7 p.m. PST.
Congratulations to all the nominees. I look forward to seeing who wins in February. You can see a full list of the nominees and watch the ceremony streamed online at: https://annieawards.org.
