Patrick Warburton To Host Annie Awards

Veteran TV/film/voice actor Patrick Warburton has been tapped as host of the 41st Annie Awards set for February 1 at UCLA’s Royce Hall. Warburton, who became known for playing Elaine’s on-and-off boyfriend on Seinfeld, has been the voice behind the characters on numerous animated series including Family Guy, Hercules, and Buzz Lightyear Of Star Command. His film credits include The Emperor’s New Groove, Chicken Little, The Wild, Bee Movie, and Ted. The Annie Awards honor overall excellence as well as individual achievement in 30 categories ranging from best feature, production design, character animation and effects animation to storyboarding, writing, music, editing and voice acting.

  1. Aaaaand he starred in six seasons of “Rules of Engagement,” a network television show successful enough to be currently in wide syndication, which inexplicably the industry and press tend to under-rate and forget.

    1. I agree. Rules of Engagement was never amazing, but it was consistently good. I don’t think it had a single bad episode.

  2. And don’t forget, while not an animated comic hero show, Warburton was also The Tick!. On the animated side he was a very funny wolf on the animated movies Hoodwinked!
