Warner Bros. Hosted ‘The Bugs Ball’ Bash For This Year’s Annie Award Nominees (PHOTOS)

Last weekend, Warner Bros. Animation hosted artists, producers, and executives from across the animation industry on the Warner Bros. Studios lot in Burbank for its first-ever “Bugs Ball,” a party to celebrate the nominees of the 45th Annie Awards.

The studio shared some photos with Cartoon Brew from the festivities. It used one of its sound stages for the party, and from the looks of it, the party was a grand affair.

Unlike the madness of Oscar parties, there aren’t a whole lot of extracurricular activities surrounding the Annies so it’s great to see WB Animation president Sam Register using the studio’s resources to celebrate the accomplishments of the animation community.

Here’s a gallery of some of the attendees at The Bugs Ball:
