We haven't finished plowing through the photos and such from our night at the Annie Awards, but someone did send in a link to a video of Giancarlo Volpe's acceptance speech so we thought we'd put out the link for those who haven't caught it yet. At the end of the speech he gave a shout out to ASN, which was awesome for those of us in attendance. The crazy people shouting in the background? Yeh, we were probably the loudest!

The wild reception given to the Avatar winners wasn't lost on the rest of the audience either. Apparently the local IATSE (the union representing many of the technical folks in the animation industry) president attended and sent out a newsletter covering his experience at the Annie's. He writes:

"The Avatar fans were by far the most vocal. They practically brought down the roof in support of their nominees and winners."

A copy of the entire letter with the Avatar bits highlighted can be found by clicking on the thumbnail to the right.
