Notable industry figures join nominated artists for evening of classic cartoon-themed music, refreshments and activities.
For the third year in a row, Annie Award noms literally had a “ball” this past Friday at Warner Bros. Animation’s 3rd Annual “The Bugs Ball,” as top producers, artists and figures in the animation industry gathered on the Warner Bros. lot to celebrate the 2020 Annie Awards nominees.
Once guests entered the party through a secret “Speakeasy” door in Bugs Bunny’s living room, they were treated to a number of tasty victuals and libations, such as a “Rabbit Hole,” “That’s All Folks,” and “What’s Up Doc,” served from a 25’ Tree Monster bar centerpiece. Party highlights included a custom video wall and DJ booth playing classic Looney Tunes cartoons; custom Bugs Bunny wrapped carnival games; a giant Light Bright installation; and custom screen-printed Bugs Bunny and Tweety T-shirts and tote bags.
Here’s a selection of festive party pics:
