The Annie Awards is an annual award given out by the Hollywood chapter of the International Animated Film Association (ASIFA-Hollywood) honoring the best in animated films and television series.

The award was the brainchild of voice actress June Foray, and the ceremony was first held in 1972. At first, the awards were to honor veterans who contributed to the industry, but it soon started honoring the best in animation today.

Besides the usual awards, there are also several "special achievement awards", including...

  • June Foray Award: Awarded to those who made benevolent and charitable contributions to the art of animation.
  • Ub Iwerks Award: Awarded to individuals or companies for technical achievements that impacted the animation industry.
  • Winsor McCay Award: One of the industry's highest honors, this award is considered a lifetime achievement award given to those who made their mark on the animation industry.
