If you weren't at Royce Hall for this year's ASIFA-Hollywood Annie Awards, then you missed something special - Brad Bird's hilarious Winsor McCay Award for Lifetime Achievement acceptance speech video. Even if you were there, it's worth a second look. Possibly a third...
One of the highlights of this past Saturday's ASIFA-Hollywood AnnieAwards was Brad Bird's acceptance speech, done via video from theVancouver set of Mission Impossible IV. Brad was honored with the Winsor McCay Award for Lifetime Achievement. How could you possibly out-do the compilation of clips they screened highlighting his incredible body of work? Well, you follow it with a recorded acceptance speech that brought down the house.
If you weren't at Royce Hall, you're in for a treat. If you were lucky to be there, this is certainly worth at least two more viewings...enjoy!
