Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II won Annie Awards for Best Animated Television Production, Writing, and Voice Acting for Ahmed Best’s Jar-Jar. But perhaps the biggest shock was the total shut-out of WALL-E – it was beat in nearly every category it was nominated for by Kung Fu Panda. Seriously. Kung Fu Panda. The hell?
Other winners include Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs and Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Kevin Kiner was up for Music in an Animated Television Production for the ‘Rising Malevolence’ episode of The Clone Wars, but lost out to Henry Jackman, Hans Zimmer & John Powell for Secrets of the Furious Five, a Kung Fu Panda spinoff.

- Next week: The story continues in “Defenders of the Peace.”
- People: George Takei crosses fandom lines to voice General Lok Durd in next week’s episode. I hope the character survives, if only because that name demands at least one buddy episode with Dooku.
- Reviews: Waiting until Tuesday nets all the regulars: The review blog, IGN, io9 and Den of Geek.
- Comics: UK fans can pick up Clone Wars comics.

The man who brought us Khan lives no more. Ricardo Montalban passed away yesterday morning at the age of 88.
CJ honors the passing of a great contributor to the geek world, from his roles as Star Trek’s Khan, to movies including Naked Gun and Spy Kids, and of course Fantasy Island. There are also many CJ’ers who are fans of the series Kim Possible which he contributed to recently.
Raise a glass of Romulan ale and toast farewell with us!
