Annies set for Feb. 1

ASIFA-Hollywood will announce nominations Jan. 6

The Intl. Animated Film Society (ASIFA-Hollywood) will move its 30th annual Annie Awards from the ceremony’s usual early November date to Feb. 1.

The kudofest honoring excellence in animation across film, television and video will now mirror the Academy Awards’ deadlines and judging period. Industry insiders expect the Annies to act as a prelude to the animated feature Oscar, a category introduced for the first time last year.

Studios including DreamWorks, Disney Television Animation, Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures Imageworks have been holding special screenings for Annie voting members featuring panel discussions with the directors, producers and other talent behind the films submitted for consideration. Pics recently screened have included “Treasure Planet,” “Stuart Little 2,” “Ice Age,” “Lilo & Stitch,” “Eight Crazy Nights,” “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron,” “The Wild Thornberrys” and “Monsters, Inc.”

ASIFA-Hollywood will announce nominations Jan. 6. The Annies will be presented at a black-tie awards ceremony at the Alex Theater in Glendale on Feb. 1.
