The Vince Lombardi Trophy wasn’t the only piece of hardware handed out this weekend. The 38th annual Annie Awards took place as well with the DreamWorks film How to Train Your Dragon sweeping many of the regular awards (which was to be expected with Disney/Pixar boycotting the awards because of judging procedures they feel favor DreamWorks.)

The highlight of the night, however, was when director Brad Bird was awarded one of three Windsor McCay Awards for career achievement (The others went to Eric Goldberg and Matt Groening). Bird couldn’t be there to accept in person so he video taped an acceptance speech from the Vancouver set of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. Most of the video package highlighted Bird’s incredibly varied history in animation (including The Simpsons, The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and more) but then things take a turn for the worse. Check it out after the jump along with a full list of winners. Read More »
