It's that time of year!

Time to dress up all fancy-like and
join the LA animation community
for the annual ASIFA-Hollywood Annie Awards!

And how cool is it that FISH HOOK got nominated?!

THIS cool:

Not sure if you saw our season one finale,
but to be perfectly honest,
it DESERVES to be nominated.

Because it's,
you know,
and stuff.

So off to the show we went!

I've mentioned the differences between the
ASIFA-EAST Animation Festival Awards
and ASIFA-Hollywood's Annie Awards over HERE, but it still blows me away how different they are.

While ASIFA-EAST's is a much more casual affair,
ASIFA Hollywood's is a black tie affair
with much more pomp, circumstance and celebrity guests.
Case in point,
this year's host was comedian Patton Oswalt:

He was, to put in bluntly, simply brilliant.

full of personality,
and razor quick.
If there was an opportunity for a joke,
Mr. Oswalt grabbed it and NAILED it.

Conversely, FISH HOOKS did NOT grab the Annie for
Best Writing in a Television Production.
It went to some new show called The Simpsons.

Regardless, I had a great time hanging out at the pre and post-show parties,
drinking root beers,
and catching up with friends old and new.

And the goodie bag wasn't bad either
since it came with this:

Yes, maam.
That's a hardcover book documenting
every cover of Animation Magazine ever printed.
Of course, I immediately went looking for this one:


This was only my second time to the Annie's and it was great fun.
The awards ceremony,
like most award's ceremonies.
is a bit looooooooooong,
but it's worth it to get to hobnob with
so many talented people in one place.
So I'll definitely be going back next year.

And maybe FISH HOOKS will win!

Hey, did you know that you are in fusion fall? A lot of S.A.C.T. agents have the last names of the creators of shows. Yours is a weapons dealer.
