39th Annie Awards This Saturday

Hey gang, but if you are gang members it will affect you later on. Anyway, the Annie Awards are this Saturday at Royce Hall at UCLA. If you forgot the Annie's are like the Oscars for animators, unless they actually get an Oscar for animation.

Guess whose hosting?

Guessing time is over now!

Patton Oswalt, yeah  from Ratatouille. 

He's a stand up comedian through and through, so I can't wait to see what he does, but no way in Hell is the voice of Spongebob, Tom Kenny, not gonna try and steal the show, when he goes on stage for some reason it's his stage.

The event is happening Feb 4 this Saturday at UCLA's Royce Hall. You can still get tickets at 25 a pop, there is a dress code, keep it classy.

We'll be covering the even here at TTDILA, so look forward to coverage at interviews with some people in animation. You know I'm covering Adventure Time.

Just some random thoughts about it

-Gabe Swarr who I've written about multiple times is up for Directing in a Television Production for “Kung Fu Panda” – Nickelodeon and DreamWorks Animation

-God, the voice actors will be doing so many bad jokes. Voice actors never shut down.

-I wonder whose going to win the Annie for Best Animated Video Game , I've written about it here with a full list of whose in it and unlike last year I hope to accept the award on behalf  of the game company doesn't show up. I hope Rayman wins from Ubisoft, love the game and the character design. The characters attacks look like old-school violent cartoons, I mean you can slap each other.

Cartoon Brew is streaming it, which might make it less fun, you get some dirty jokes and I like it that way
