We've got some AMAZING news!
The International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood, has announced the nominations for its 48th Annie Awards recognizing the year's best in the field of animation!
We are over the moon to see Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum snag a nomination in the Best TV/Media - Preschool category for the hour long special 'I am Madam President'!
In 'I Am Madam President', Xavier’s sister Yadina Riddle decides to add a female president to a museum exhibit. Shocked to discover that no girl has ever been President of the United States, Yadina goes on a journey to meet some of history’s boldest women including Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Amelia Earhart, and Sally Ride. From those heroes, Yadina learns that just because something’s never been done before, doesn’t mean you can’t do it! Even if that something is becoming the first female President of the United States!
The other nominees for Best TV/Media - Preschool include Buddi, Muppet Babies, Stillwater, and The Adventures of Paddington.
A huge congratulations to our Xavier Riddle crew, and all the other 48th Annual Annie Award nominees.
The Annie Awards for animation will be presented by ASIFA-Hollywood during a virtual ceremony on Friday, April 16.
See you then!
