Robot Chicken gets recognition

The best Star Wars animated special of the year got three Annie Award nods: Animated Television Production, Directing, and Character Animation. (Okay, the last one not necessarily for the SW special, but still.) Whoo!

Other honorees include Futurama: Bender’s Big Score (Best Home Entertainment Production,) Kim Possible (up against RC for Best Television Production) and a landslide of noms for Pixar’s Ratatouille. Another familiar name is Doug Chiang, up for Production Design in an Animated Feature Production for his work on Beowulf.
