Host Oswalt helps Mendler, Marsden, Snow
Annie Awards host Patton Oswalt came to the rescue of presenters Bridgit Mendler, Jason Marsden and Brittany Snow, who inadvertantly announced a winner out of turn at UCLA’s Royce Hall on Saturday. After presenting the nominees for best TV production-preschool, Snow opened her envelope and read the winner of the next category. After sorting everything out and trying to console a very upset Snow, Oswalt quipped to the trio, “Don’t cross your fingers about that ‘Yo Gabba Gabba’ cameo.”
Joining ASIFA-Hollywood prexy Frank Gladstone at the pre- and post-kudos parties for the animation biz were Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Gore Verbinski, Mace Neufeld, Judy Greer and ASIFA-Hollywood co-founder June Foray.
