Sheridan grad wins second Annie Award
Alumnus Trevor Jimenez has won an Annie Award, taking home the prize for Best Storyboarding in a Feature category for his work on Soul. His win was recognized during a virtual ceremony of the 48th annual Annie Awards on April 16.
It marks the second Annie in three years for the 2007 animation graduate, having received Best Animated Short for Weekends in 2019, a film that also garnered him an Academy Award nomination.
Jimenez was one of several Sheridan grads to work on Soul, and the Pixar production was the big winner on the night with seven awards, including the night’s biggest prize: Best Feature. Soul also won for Best FX, Best Character Animation, Best Music, Best Writing and Best Editorial.
In 2018, Jimenez worked on another film that nearly swept the Annie Awards, having been a story artist on Coco, which won 11 Annies, including Best Feature, and went on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
Five other alumni were nominated for Annies, and grads worked on all five films nominated for Best Feature: Soul, Onward, The Croods New Age, The Willoughbys and Trolls World Tour.
The Annie Awards are the top prize given out by the International Animated Film Society.
