Organized by the Californian section of the International Animated Film Association, over 45 editions, the Annie Awards has celebrated excellence in animated film, both for television and theatrical release.

Also worth noting: many French artists have been nominated for non-French productions, with, in particular, 3 nominations for Back to the Moon by Fx Goby (Best Animated Special Production, Character Animation in a Animated TV/Broadcast Production, and Music in an Animated TV/Broadcast Production). Further nominations: Outstanding Achievement for Production Design in an Animated TV/Broadcast Production for Céline Desrumaux; Outstanding Achievement for Character Animation in an Animated TV/Broadcast Production for Bruno Mangyoku (Age of Sail); Outstanding Achievement for Character Animation in a Live Action Production for Laurent Laban, Claire Bustin, and Marc-André Coulombe (Christopher Robin), and for the head animator Adrien Annesley (The Nutcracker and the Four Realms).
