Kudos presentation by the Academy of Dance on Film was held at Glendale’s Alex Theatre.

Rob Marshall won for choreography of the ABC/Storyline Entertainment tuner “Annie,” which he also directed.

The episodic TV category saw a tie between Joe Malone (“Ally McBeal”) and Jerry Mitchell (“The Drew Carey Show”).

Travis Payne was recognized for his work on a musicvid for the Brian Setzer Orchestra, while Alan Johnson, who directed the memorable dance-based “Gap” commercials, also walked away with a nod.
