Toon Zone Members Choose the Best of Animation in 2005

2005 may have not been one of the best years in animation, but there were some works that members of the Toon Zone forums felt were deserving of praise. Forum members voted for the year’s best in what turned out to be a very close battle in numerous categories.

Cartoon Network’s Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends was the grand winner among television animation, managing to win a total of four awards. In addition to being chosen the best TV series of 2005, director Craig McCracken was voted the best director on a TV series, Grey DeLisle was recognized as the best voice actress of the year, and the show also won for best character design.

Though Foster’s was quite successful, it was not without competition. Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender came very close to being voted the best animated TV series of 2005, and won in multiple categories. The Toon Zone forum members voted Avatar’s storyboards, animation, and writing as the best of last year.

Fullmetal Alchemist, as seen on Adult Swim, was chosen the best foreign series, and received recognition for its musical score. Disney’s Kim Possible won in the other musical category of best song for “Could It Be.”

Seth MacFarlane won for best Voice Actor, giving American Dad its only win this year. But Seth scored another victory with Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, which was chosen as best movie made for TV or direct to video.

When voting for the best animated achievements in theatrical movies, forum members were split between Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit and Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride. Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit was chosen as the best theatrical film, yet it was Tim Burton who was chosen the best director. Wallace and Gromit won awards for best animation and writing, while Corpse Bride won for best Storyboards, character design, voice acting (Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter), and music score.

Finally, in the two “extra” categories, Bonus Stage was chosen the best Webtoon, and the release of The Incredibles was chosen the best DVD of 2005.

Many thanks to all those who voted and contributed to this event.
