Calamity and Wolfwalkers nominated for the 48th Annie Awards, the Oscars of animation
The Hollywood equivalent of the European Emile Awards, the Annie Awards have, since 1972, honored excellence in world animation—short films and features, television and cinema combined. For this year's 2021 edition, a large number of French films and artists are included in the nominations list.
Organized by the Californian section of the International Animated Film Association, and now in their 48th year, the Annie Awards celebrate the cream of animated filmmaking both for television and theatrical release. Last year, I Lost My Body by Jérémy Clapin won the Annie Awards for Best Independent Film and Best Screenplay.
Representing short films, two French productions (Blue Fear and Souvenir Souvenir) received nominations in the Best Short Film section. On top of this, an impressive three out of the five titles nominated in the Best Short Student Film category are French productions, once again highlighting the high standards of excellence upheld at French animation schools (in this case Gobelins - L'École de l'Image and RUBIKA - L'École des Talents de la Création Numérique). Furthermore, Shooom's Odyssey continues its extraordinary international career, picking up three Annie Award nominations!
The (online) Awards Ceremony will be held on April 16, 2021. The complete nominations list can be viewed here.
