Welcome each and every one of you to this very special occasion. The time you have all been waiting for is is finally here, so no more sleepless nights because here it is. The DC2AA (Pronounced “D-C-Two-Double A”) Awards are being released and I am your exclusive source for this special occasion!
What is that I hear you mumbling to yourself? You have never heard of the DC2AA Awards before? Well let me be the first to tell you, it is the single most prestigious award given out to those displaying excellence in the world of animation by a 21 year old boy in the Midwest without any monetary value! So yeah if you win it is kind of a big deal.
I will be announcing three winners this year, each in a separate category. The three categories are as follows:
- Excellence in Entertainment
- Excellence in Education
- Excellence in Marketing/Advertising
Alright here we go!
The Lion King
When The Lion King was originally released in 1994, the film grossed more than $783 million worldwide. It was the most successful film released in 1994 and currently sits as the 20th highest-grossing feature film ever. It is a good watch for people of all ages and was created with great animation.
In a short documentary by Jim Forbes titled, Behind the clues: 10 years of Blue , he calls Blue’s Clues “one of the most successful, critically acclaimed, and ground-breaking preschool television series of all time”. It has also won 9 Emmy Awards, according to Wikipedia. In my opinion Blue’s Clues was a great use of animation. Many children, including myself, watched this show daily. Not only did it teach its viewers, but it made it fun and entertaining for their demographic.
Old Spice’s “OldSpice Guy” commercials starring Isiah Mustafa
These commercials have millions of views on YouTube. These commercials are greatly entertaining to the point that people go online to look up commercials to watch. That’s a far cry from somebody changing the channel during commercials. The Old Spice guy commercials had animation in them to make Mustafa do odd and funny things. These commercials created a great stir amongst viewers to have people searching their product up essentially.
