“Kung Fu Panda” kicked considerable butt at the 36th annual Annie Awards on Friday night, shutting out the competition to win every feature-related category the international animation society ASIFA offers — and then some, earning additional kudos for its videogame and “Secrets of the Furious Five” short film tie-ins.
This is huge for Deamworks! To many, they have been the house of Shrek. Now Kung Fu Panda changes that. The animation industry has seen that they are much more than just the home of the green ogre. Congratulations to the crew! Now, on to the Oscars! -Floyd Bishop
