Of course we are happy for all of the winners across the different categories - congratulations to all of the great artists and their creations! A category that really caught us off guard was that Pixar didn't win for writing (Steve Purcell). We mean no disrespect to the Mickey Mouse short writer, Darrick Bachman, who won for O Futebol Classico, but we were shocked when a short that didn't really contain a lot of specific dialogue or "acts" to write for, won (and it's 3:51 in length). Again, we want to stress no disrespect to the winners, it just really surprised us and took us aback. 

So, what were your thoughts? Did you watch along with the live stream of the Annie Awards? What were your comments on the streaming lag? What about the other awards - were there any that really stood out to you or ones that you were happy to see win? 

Although they slow the pace of the show down a bit, we really enjoyed the Winsor McCay awards this year - really great history and stories for the recipients. Oh, and we were also bummed to see that ex-Pixar employees Dice Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo didn't win for the Best Animation Short category for The Dam Keeper (Feast won)...but hey, there's always the Oscars coming up that they could still win at! [smile_zpsf797a80b]

I didn't watch the live stream because I wanted to get some sleep ( while watching 'Up' [Laughing_zpsee77b0c4] ), but I will watch once they post it on YouTube.

I was shocked to see Pixar getting snubbed for all of their categories, because 'Toy Story OF TERROR!' so many awards last year. But I still liked seeing some of my other animated favorite win, like the Mickey Shorts and 'Wander Over Yonder'. [Winking_zps1d9118ce]
