Nominations for 2008 Annie Awards

It's that time of year again. Voting for the Annie awards! Packages start showing up at the door with screeners. Being apart of ASIFA has it's perks. Although I do take the voting serious. I actually created a grading list of sorts that I fill out while watching the films. It helps me decide when the films are very close. This year I have to say that Dreamworks has done a fantastic job with Kung Fu Panda. I think Wall-E and Panda are going to be a tough call. I still have not seen all the films in that category as of yet. Hoping to see Bolt tonight.

Below is the list of production categories. See the full list here
