Cuphead's getting some recognition!!!
For the 45th Annie Awards Cuphead will be the recipient of this year's 'Special Achievement Award'!!!! Which according to their website is:
An Annie Award for Special Achievement in Animation is given to an individual, individuals, or a company for unique and outstanding achievement in animation not recognized by in other Annie Award categories. This special award is given by the Board of Directors of ASIFA-Hollywood, by a unanimous vote, when such recognition is deemed desirable.This is freaking amazing!! Holy cow!!! 2 animators who worked on the game, Hanna Abi-Hanna and Tina Nawrocki, are also nominated for Outstanding Achievement for Character Animation in a Video Game! Super cool!!
Even Justin Trudeau went out the way to congratulate the team! I always told people who were on the fence on buying the game to get it so they can "support Canadian content!" A lot of people tend to forget that it is!
This is insanely amazing to see Cuphead receiving so much attention and praise! The creators and those who worked on it put so much passion into it that I can't help but be so happy for them to see their dream project succeed. Cuphead is still continuing to pop up on other website's Game of The Year Awards lists it's exciting!
