Gollum Wins the Annie Award!


After more than a decade from his first appearance on the big screen, Gollum never ceases to please the public, along with his “Slinker” counterpart, Smeagol.

The most famous CGI character of Weta Digital has won the 41th Annual Annie Award for Best Character Animation in a Live Action Production. The award goes to Gollum’s nominated animators Jeff Capogreco, Jedrzej Wojtowicz, Kevin Estey, Alessandro Bonora and Gino Acevedo for their work in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, beating out another Weta team which animated the Goblin King in the same movie.

Congratulations to Weta Digital’s animators who have worked to bring Gollum to life once again!
