Gretchen Hoffman The group behind the prestigious Annie Awards hopes moving the ceremony to February will give the animation industry accolades a greater pull with the Academy Awards. The 30th annual Annies, which traditionally have been awarded in November, will be Feb. 1 at The Alex Theatre. The Oscars are awarded March 23. "The primary motivation for us changing the Annies to Feb. 1 is because we wanted the calendar year for the eligibility period to be Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 to kind of mirror the Academy Awards," said Antran Manoogian, president of the Association Internationale Du Film D'Animation, or ASIFA-Hollywood, the 1,800 members of which judge the nominations.

Glendale residents and Disney studio animators Jennifer and Bert Klein have not just paid tribute to their founding father with the release of their own new animated short film, “Pups of Liberty.” The strength of their artistic vision was validated earlier this week when they received an Annie Award nomination for Best Animated Short Subject. Annies are equivalent to Oscars for the animated cognoscenti. When Walt Disney released “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in 1937, he defied critics who labeled the effort “Disney’s Folly,” and garnered the first Academy Award for an animated movie that is still ranked 49th on the American Film Institute’s list of “100 Best Films of All Time,” and launched a studio dynasty that defined the art of animation.
