Cartoon Brew notes that the Annie nominees in this category don't overlap at all with the Oscar shortlist, *but* it alerts me to the fact that a few of the Oscar-shortlist films *did* get nominations in individual achievement categories. The ones I've found:

If Anything Happens I Love You

  • Best Editorial - TV/Media (against Cops and RobbersHildaLamp Life and To: Gerard)

The Snail and the Whale

  • Best Special Production (against Baba YagaLibresse / Bodyform - #WombStoriesNixie & Nimbo and Shooom's Odyssey)

To: Gerard

  • Best Production Design - TV/Media (against Baba YagaShooom's OdysseyThe Adventures of Paddington and Trash Truck)
  • Best Editorial - TV/Media (against Cops and RobbersHildaIf Anything Happens I Love You and Lamp Life)

For whatever that's worth.

Vote!

Note: If Anything Happens I Love You is the only Oscar nominee that also has an Annie nomination (for Best Editorial - TV/Media, *not* for Animated Short).

None of these films are Oscar nominees, but just for the record: the winner is... Souvenier Souvenir.

Also, The Snail and the Whale, which made the Oscar shortlist but did *not* get an Oscar nomination, won the Annie for best special production.

If Anything Happens I Love You, which is the only Oscar nominee for best animated short that got *any* sort of Annie nomination, did not win (it lost the TV editing category to Hilda).
