With all that is going on concerning the Oscars and diversity, I wanted to take a little moment and point out the Annie Awards, taking place in just over 2 weeks, is chalk full of diversity! You have characters of every color, creed, animal, and shape. Ok, maybe the onscreen animated characters don’t really count, but if you were to take a look at the list of names that brings those characters to life, from art to writing, directing, voicing, producing, etc. there are people from all over this great planet. Talk about diversity, just look at the list of nominees. http://annieawards.org/nominees/
What a crazy group of fun and talented people, the unsung heroes. Honestly, there is a lot of diversity in the Oscar Awards, if you just look beyond the actor’s categories.
I may only be the live announcer for the Annies, but I truly enjoy being a part of this group!
