The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced today (Aug. 17, 2005), the Emmy Award winners in Individual Achievement in Animation, as well as Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for the 57th Annual Emmy Awards. Juried awards do not have nominations and are selected by members of ATAS' animation peer group, which may choose more than one winner in a category or none.

The winners will be presented with their Emmys at the 2005 Creative Arts Awards on Sunday, September 11, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
