Two other voice per­form­ers in My Lit­tle Pony: Friend­ship is Magic had been nom­i­nated in the same cat­e­gory: Trevor Devall (Prince Blue­blood) and Tabitha St. Ger­main (many characters).

Also nom­i­nated were Lee Tockar (Dok­tor Frogg) for League of Super Evil: “Lose Weight” and Sam Vin­cent (Lester) for Rated A for Awe­some: “Lost in Character.”

The UBCP/ACTRA Award for Best Actress went to Camille Sul­li­van (Sis­ters & Broth­ers), while the award for Best Actor was given to Stephen Lobo for Afghan Luke. Also for Sis­ters & Broth­ers, Kacey Rohl was named Best Newcomer.

The UBCP/ACTRA Award for Best Stunt was handed out to Phil Mitchell for his work in True Jus­tice: “Urban Warfare.”

Melissa Stubbs received the John Juliani Award of Excel­lence. The Lorena Gale Woman of Dis­tinc­tion Award was given to Carol Whiteman.

The UBCP/ACTRA Awards cer­e­mony took place Sat­ur­day night at the Cana­dian Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion stu­dios in Vancouver.

Over 130 per­for­mances were sub­mit­ted to the nom­i­nat­ing com­mit­tee, who used a vot­ing sys­tem to deter­mine the final nominees.

The nom­i­nat­ing com­mit­tee included UBCP mem­bers Blu Mankuma, Brian Markin­son, Car­men Moore, David Myl­rea, Garvin Cross, Jay Brazeau, John Cassini, Lauro Char­trand, Melissa Stubbs, Robert Moloney, Sarah-Jane Red­mond and Sonja Ben­nett. Where a mem­ber of the com­mit­tee was also sub­mit­ted for a nom­i­na­tion, they recused them­selves from the voting.

The Union of British Colum­bia Per­form­ers (UBCP/ACTRA) is an autonomous branch of ACTRA (Alliance of Cana­dian Cin­ema, Tele­vi­sion and Radio Artists), the national orga­ni­za­tion of pro­fes­sional per­form­ers work­ing in the English-language recorded media in Canada. ACTRA rep­re­sents the inter­ests of 22,000 mem­bers across Canada.

Frankenweenie Trailer Out

Frankenweenie (2012)

Franken­wee­nie (2012)

Ready for a first look at Tim Burton’s remake  of Franken­wee­nie? Just released, the first trailer from this stop-motion film due out later this year.

Franken­wee­nie tells the story of a boy named Vic­tor loses his dog and uses the power of sci­ence to bring it back to life. Once the oth­ers learn of his secret, they set out to cre­ate their own mon­sters, each based on their respec­tive pets and personalities.

A remake of Tim Burton’s ear­lier short film Franken­wee­nie. Like the 1984 ver­sion, it is a par­ody of and an homage to the clas­sic 1931 hor­ror film Franken­stein. The film is shot in stop-motion ani­ma­tion, much like Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride and The Night­mare Before Christ­mas.

The film will hit the­aters on Octo­ber 5th, and will be released in Dis­ney 3D in selected theaters.

We have posted the video for the next PIXAR sequel, Cars 2. To be hon­est, when I first heard the premise of Cars, I thought that might be the first PIXAR flop; boy, was I wrong. Based on this trailer, Cars will be a lot like its big­ger brother, Toys Story; the sequels are bet­ter than the original.

Watch the trailer and see what you think!
