Guild Mania #2

Here’s some guild wins for you!

DGA AWARDS

Best Director: Ben Affleck, Argo

Harvey Weinstein bangs his head against a wall, knowing that Argo has got the Oscar in the bag.

THE ART DIRECTORS GUILD OF AMERICA

Period: Anna Karenina

Fantasy: Life Of Pi

Contemporary: Skyfall

Looks like Anna Karenina has worked its way to be Art Direction frontrunner. And while Life Of Pi’s success confuses me, I can hardly complain. Any award that movie wins is fine by me.

THE ANNIE AWARDS

Best Animated Feature: Wreck It-Ralph

Best Animated Short: Paperman

Animated Effects In An Animated Production: Rise Of The Guardians

Animated Effects In A Live-Action Production: The Avengers

Character Animation In A Feature Production: ParaNorman

Character Animation In A Live-Action Production: Life Of Pi

Character Design In An Animated Feature: ParaNorman

Directing In An Animated Feature: Rich Moore, Wreck-It Ralph

Music In An Animated Feature: Wreck-It Ralph

Production Design In An Animated Feature: Brave

Storyboarding In An Animated Feature: Rise Of The Guardians

Voice Acting In An Animated Feature: Alan Tudyk, Wreck-It Ralph

Writing In An Animated Feature: Wreck-It Ralph

Editorial In An Animated Feature: Brave

I kinda wish that Rise Of The Guardians had gotten more awards, but I can hardly complain that Wreck-It Ralph won best Music. Give the soundtrack a listen, you’ll be surprised. And Alan Tudyk for Voice Acting? Oddly enough, I think that great voice acting in animated movies seem to come from villains, like Teri Hatcher in Coraline or Ned Beatty in Toy Story 3. I think that Jude Law from Rise Of The Guardians gets my vote.
