Annie Award contest

ASIFA-Hollywood will be presenting the 36th Annual Annie Awards on Friday, January 30, 2009, at UCLA’s Royce Hall in Westwood, California. The evening begins with a pre-reception at 6 p.m. and event will be hosted by Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants).

Cartoon Brew has four sets of tickets (four pairs) which we’d like to share with our readers. These are the $250. VIP tickets and we are giving them away to the winners of our latest trivia contest. At 11am Pacific Time we will post a simple question relating to the Annie Awards in the space below. The first four correct respondents in the Comments section below will win the tickets.

The Contest is Now Closed! We have our winners!

THE QUESTION WAS: WHAT YEAR WAS THE FIRST ANNIE AWARDS CEREMONY? (The answer was 1972).

Entrants must live in the Southern California area (or are willing to transport themselves there by their own means). Please do not enter the contest if you cannot accept the prize.

For info on buying tickets to the event, go to the Annie Awards website.

    OK, so the first awards ceremony was held in 1972. This year will be the 36th Annual Annie Awards… Either I’ve lost what math skills I possessed, or there’s something odd here. Did they skip 1973 or something?

    My thoughts exactly Jody.

    The Annies skipped a calendar year when the date of the event was shifted from the middle of the year to the beginning to allow for “best of year” awards. The extra six months was picked up by the following calendar year.

    Those who didn’t win the VIP tickets can still buy $25 general admission seats at the Annie website. This year’s show is going to be a big one, and this is the first time ASIFA has offered low cost seats to the ceremony.
