Patton Oswalt To Host the Annie Animation Awards

The Young Adult and Ratatouille star will head the February 4th event celebrating the best in animation from the last year.

One of my favorite bits from Patton Oswalt is from his standup album, My Weakness Is Strong, where he details precisely how his critically acclaimed performance in Pixar's Ratatouille ruined his favorite holiday, Halloween, for him. I won't go into it here, but you should check it out, and really, I only mention it because of the straight-as-a-line connection between Oswalt's role in Ratatouille, and the fact that the movie was the winner of the 35th Annie Awards for 2007.

This year's Annie's has a pretty eclectic selection of nominees across film and TV, including Archer, The Adventures of Tintin, the extended trailer for the upcoming FPS, Prey 2, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Tickets are still available for the event, which will be held the night of February 4th at UCLA Royce Hall in Los Angeles. Head over to the event's site and snag a couple (or just find out more about this year's nominees).

The Annies will be held on February 4th. You can find out more information about the nominees International Animated Film Society site.
