Annie Awards

CLICKY CLICKY
For Link To all the nominations

Over the years, the Annies have evolved from an inspiration to an honored tradition in the world of animation. June Foray brought the award to life in 1972, and with the help of so many dedicated members of ASIFA-Hollywood, the Annies have played a vital role in recognizing animation's biggest and brightest stars.

Annie Facts
June Foray the voice of Cinderella created the Awards in 1972.
Max Fleischer had just died, and of course he was such a founder of animation, creating Betty Boop and Olive Oyl and Popeye and so forth, and he invented rotoscoping. It was a splendid idea to honor him and Dave Fleischer, his brother, who directed so many of the films. Thus Annie Awards was born named by her Husband.
