2020 is a new year for Netflix. They’re coming with a vengeance in awards shows this year and honestly, no one’s going to blame them. No one.
With recent nominations for the Golden Globes, Netflix has yet another great awards night at the 47th Annie Awards on last Saturday, the 25th of January 2020, winning 19 trophies (I told you. Vengeance.). These awards include Best Feature for Klaus, Best Feature-independent for I Lost My Body, Best TV/Media Production for Preschool Children for Ask the Storybots, and last but definitely not the least, Best General Audience TV/ Media Production for BoJack Horseman.
You might tell yourself: But that’s only 4 Netflix shows. Yes, we know. But let’s take into account the seven other Annies Klaus won by itself, taking home the most overall awards and winning every single category it was nominated for. Not only the film won, but also its director––Sergio Pablos––who won direction and storyboarding. Sergio Martins, the films animator, also won for character animation, Torsten Schrank for character design, Szymon Biernacki and Marcin Jakubowski for production design, and Pablo Garcia Revert for editorial.
Enough about the success of Klaus and let’s move on to I Lost My Body which picked up trophies in various categories including for composer, which Dan Levy won together with Jerémy Clapin and Guillaume Laurant who’ve won writing for director.
Love, Death & Robots also deserve to be on this list as it won four Annie Awards for animated effects in an animated TV/media production manned by Viktor Németh, Szabolcs Illés, Ádám Sipos and Vladimir Zhovna, music who was done by composer and lyricist Rob Cairns, production design headed by Alberto Mielgo and editorial spearheaded by Bo Juhl, Stacy Auckland and Valerian Zamel.
Like what I told you: Netflix is back with a vengeance and no one’s coming for them anytime soon. This is but a testament to the streaming giant’s success.
