Whoohoo! The Annie nominations were announced earlier this week and El Tigre picked up four:
Best Animated Television Production Produced for Children
Character Animation in a Television Production
Monica Kennedy – El Tigre
Character Design in an Animated Television Production
Jorge Gutierrez – El Tigre "Fistfull of Collars"
Music in an Animated Television Production
Shawn Patterson – El Tigre "Yellow Pantera"
Huge congrats to everyone on the nominations and hopefully we'll sweep it at the show this year!!
As an additional note, I wanted to mention this year's big upset......the lack of production design in an animated television production nominees. In fact....there were none!
To say there there were absolutely NO shows this year that had art direction above average is a pretty harsh statement. My condolences to all those that submitted some really high quality work and got passed over. Hopefully next year's judging results will be a little more reasonable.
