American Anime Awards Updates
posted on by Christopher Macdonald
In our previously posted list of winners, Anime News Network neglected to list the award for best actor, which was given to Vic Mignogna for his role as Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist. We apologize to our readers and to Mr. Mignogna for this omission.
Some astute readers have noticed that ANN reported that Debi Derryberry won the Mecha for best actress in a comedy, while the Anime Network website states that Michelle Ruff won that same award. We've confirmed that the award was correctly given to Debi Derryberry and the Anime Network site is mistaken. The Anime Network is expected to make a correction to their website shortly.
Finally, if you missed the awards, you can watch the full 59-minute award ceremony here.
The winners for the American Anime Awards are:
Best Cast: Fullmetal Alchemist Best Manga: Fruits Basket Best Male Actor in a Comedy: Dave Wittenberg (Zatch Bell) Best Actress in a Comedy: Debi Derriberry (Zatch Bell) Best Theme Song: Rewrite (Fullmetal Alchemist) Best Anime Feature: Final Fantasy 7 - Advent Children Best Package Design: Fullmetal Alchemist Best Anime Comedy: FLCL Best Actor: Vic Mignogna (Fullmetal Alchemist) Best Actress: Mary Elizabeth (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG) Best Anime Short Series: FLCL Best Anime Long Series: Fullmetal Alchemist
