Congratulations to Family Guy veterans Kara Vallow and Mike Elias on their Annie Award nominations!

Kara has been nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Production Design in an Animated TV/Broadcast Production for her work on Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey
. She is responsible for developing and producing the unique animation style for the historical reenactments of the show. Best known as the executive producer/producer on Family Guy and American Dad!, and with a resume that includes shows such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Johnny Bravo, and Drawn Together, she is definitely the TV animation production aficionado. She is also an avid reader and writer, as is made evident in her blogs The Haunted Library and Teen Sleuth.

Mike has been nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Editorial in an Animated TV/Broadcast Production for his work on the one-hour Family Guy/Simpsons crossover spectacular, “The Simpsons Guy.” An editor on Family Guy since the show’s revival in 2004, Mike has been working in the film and television industry for over three decades, and has done work for such shows as The A-Team, Walker, Texas Ranger, and the brilliant, yet underrated, Clone High.

Winners will be announced on January 31, 2015. Let’s cross our fingers that these two plushie enthusiasts win!
