Animated Events: The 39th Annual Annie Awards

It's going to be an exciting weekend! This Saturday, February 1st, at 7 p.m. PST, the Annie Awards will be streamed live over the internet.

For those who don't know, the Annie Awards is the 'Oscars' of the animation industry with awards given out for various achievements in animation, visual effects, and video games.

This year's host will be Patrick "Brock Sampson" Warburton and the ceremony will honor the achievements of such animation legends as Katsuhiro Otomo and Phil Tippett.

The awards ceremony will be streamed via Jerry Beck's Animation Scoop website at Right now, the only link to the ceremony is posted on the front page of the Annie Awards website at The link goes to a hidden page on Animation Scoop which I assume will go live shortly before the ceremony starts.

You can read more about the Annie Awards on the ASIFA Hollywood website in addition to this article on Animation Scoop.
