    I’m from the east part of Australia, and I don’t know when will it start.

    Pretty awesome that a presenter at the Annies says “you know you have kids when [you've seen all the animated nominations]“.

  • eddie t

    Kinda sucks when your trying to watch who the nominees are and the video pauses and shows a target commercial!

  • A Painter

    This is so embarrassing. they are so disorganized lol. They don’t even know who showed up or what to do next after every award is given out. And where are they? at a school auditorium? wow No wonder animation isn’t taken seriously in Hollywood. gotta spice things up! com on guys!

      What’s more embarrassing is the two female presenters talking about animation and the uncanny valley who have no idea what they’re saying and then agree they were probably just asked to present so they would make out… which they proceed to do.

    Let’s do this every year!

    I used to be pissed the Annies were never televised. Now I’m thankful.

    The live stream is a generous idea with a crystal clear image but it’s also crystal clear that the Annies should have a much better presentation after 38th years.

    And I thought the NFL awards were painful today…

    • Edwin Austin

      Truly some cringe worthy moments, I felt I should be looking at it with my hands in front of my face.

  • Matthew Koh

    Crap, I missed the Borge Ring part.

    • Chris Sobieniak

      It was something! The only thing that ruined it for me was to read one of the Ustream comments on the side from someone calling Borge “one ugly dude”. That was uncalled for!

  • Kyle Maloney

    I cant remember the last time I laughed so hard. If only more award shows were this hilariously awkward.

    Nice that RANGO won every feature award except for Best Direction. Huh!

  • Kyle Maloney

    Oh, and amongst all the chaos I forgot to mention, I’m so glad Rango won best feature and not Tintin or Cars 2.

  • John

    I’ve never seen an award show crap itself so much.

  • AwesomeGirl86

    This is the first time I’ve seen the Annie Awards. :)
    I’ve previously heard about it but never got the chance to see it until now. :)

    It was a completely random and funny moment when they were presenting for best preschool show award. I know the creators of Gumball won an award early,though, but I wonder what the award was for? I don’t recall if they did announce it or not. If they did, then, I probably missed it.

    Anyways, it was very exciting for me to watch the Annie Awards for the first time. :)

  • Dave

    Was it recorded ? The live-stream didn’t work for me at all. Kept freezing , then would play a little burst of about 20 seconds, then freeze again , to the point where it was so irritating I just gave up trying to watch it.

    • Hubertcumberdale

      Same here. It was just ridiculous.

  • T. Reynolds

    I loved watching it. I laughed, I cried (Walt Peregoy). I can appreciate that some folks may be embarrassed that it’s not as well-run as the Oscars, but I don’t share the sentiment. I wish everyone could relax, roll with it and have as great a time as I did.

  • Steve Gattuso

    Having done my part for the Annies in the past, I can honestly say that this year’s event maintains the level of quality and competency the awards are known for. At least nothing caught on fire this year. And praise sweet baby Jeebus they get hosts who know how to roll with the punches. (Patton Oswalt <3 <3 <3 )

    Honestly, if the Annies ever get all SERIOUS BUSINESS about themselves, I'd be a sad panda. Bad enough they got uppity with who can vote on the things. They start hiring Bruce Vilanich to write the shows and they may as well get NoDoz to sponsor them.

  • Gerard de Souza

    There should be one rule at every award show, I don’t care if it is Big Hollywood, corporate or high school: If you are not a professional comedian (including actors who only appeared in or voiced something funny), don’t try to be funny. If they tell you you have to read something funny, don’t. Just present the award.
    No matter what awards show this always slows things down to a clog.
    Those 3 Voice-over actors were so caught-up in trying to be funny they just brainlessly read the nominees and didn’t read (I assume) the corelated category on the envelope….Not that it’s a big deal.
    But it was as Oswalt said, “You don’t try to be funny, I don’t go to the beach!”

    Anyways, still thanks for streaming, Brew.

    • Steve Gattuso

      Oh yes. Award shows are a perfect demonstration of the old saw “Cobbler, stick to your last.”
