Casting a ballot – 46th Annie Awards

The 46th Annie Awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, February 2nd, 2019.

As I have been doing for a few years, as we get into the awards season, I’ll post the fictional ballots for some of the guild awards, showing what my vote would be if I had one. I will, as a rule, abstain from my fictional vote if I haven’t seen at least half of the nominees. And to be perfectly clear, I’m not a member of any of these guilds and organizations.

The list of nominees can be seen here.

Here it goes:

Best Animated Feature – Independent: abstain (Not seen: Ce Magnifique Gâteau!MFKZMiraiRuben Brandt, CollectorTito and the Birds.)

Best Animated Feature: Isle of Dogs (Fox Searchlight Pictures / Indian Paintbrush / American Empirical Pictures)

Wes Anderson’s animated film has his trademark precise visual flair, here executed in an animation style that is rarer than it should be in big productions. But beyond that, it has a story that is touching, well-acted, and a scathing comment of the current state of the world.
