38th Annual Annie Award for Best Music in a Feature Nominees

38th Annual Annie Award for Best Music in a Feature Nominees

The Annie Awards have become one of my favorite annual awards.  I'm sure it's because each year at least one animated film falls into my top 5 of the year.  Now, I'm into all of the award categories, but, of course, I pay particular attention to the "best music" categories.   This years nominees are:

Music in a Television Production

  • J. Walter Hawkes "The Wonder Pets!" - Nickelodeon Production & Little Airplane Productions
  • Henry Jackman, Hans Zimmer and John Powell "Kung Fu Panda Holiday" - DreamWorks Animation
  • Tim Long, Alf Clausen, Bret McKenzie, Jemaine Clement "The Simpsons: Elementary School Musical" - Gracie Films
  • Shawn Patterson "Robot Chicken's DP Christmas Special" – ShadowMachine
  • Jeremy Wakefield, Sage Guyton, Nick Carr, Tuck Tucker "SpongeBob SquarePants" – Nickelodeon

Music in a Feature Production

  • Sylvain Chomet “The Illusionist” – Django Films
  •  David Hirschfelder “Legend Of The Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” – Warner Bros. Pictures
  • John Powell “How To Train Your Dragon” – DreamWorks Animation
  • Harry Gregson Williams “Shrek Forever After” – DreamWorks Animation
  • Pharrell Williams, Heitor Pereira “Despicable Me” – Illumination Entertainment

I definitely think Megamind and or Tangled (not sure it qualified) deserves a nomination over The Illusionist...and over Legend of the Guardians.   What say you?
