Road to the Red Carpet 2013

I’m so excited to once again be the announcer for the 40th Annual Annie Awards. 8 years now, and this year I will be gracing the red carpet in an Alina Pizzano original. I’m looking forward to more updates and pictures as we jouney down the road from concept to couture, culminating on the big night of Februry 2nd, 2013 at UCLA’s Royce Hall.

The Annie Show

The Annie Awards was hilarious! The backstage drama alone, could have been its own tv show!!! From missing presenters to opening the wrong “The winner is…” envelope, comedy and awkward moments and comedy ruled the night! Congrats to all the nominees and winners:  You can also find the info on the Annie site

A big shout out to some of the unsung heroes of the night: Zahra Dowlatabadi as producer, Ned Lott for wrangling an amazing crew of presenters, Grey Wears the head writer, Frank Gladstone, president of ASIFA hollywood and many others who made the night memorable.

Here is a shot of my “peops”: Tom Lawless-agent, Mark Vulcano-animation directore Heavy Iron Studios, Diana Lansleen-Actress, model, voiceover artist.

Annie Awards

Last night’s Annie Awards was an amazing, fun, edge of your seat, exciting kind of show! And that was just fighting the traffic to get there! Naah, in all seriousness, it really was one of the best shows ever! Patton Oswalt was the star and hero. So many things can go wrong on a live show and every time something went askew, Patton made it hilarious. If you watched it streaming, I would love to hear what your favorite moments were!

Here is the first picture from the night. More to follow with quips and tidbits about the backstage happenings!
