Riot Games’ League of Legends Netflix show “Arcane” has been nominated for nine Annie Awards by ASIFA-Hollywood, detailed on their website. The MOBA-inspired show is nominated for multiple TV/Media awards and is in the same list as animated shows “Invincible,” “Tuca & Bertie” and “Star Wars: Visions.”

The Annie Awards also recognize feature films and other animation media. It is “animation’s highest honor” according to their website.

‘Arcane’ is up for the following awards:

  • Best TV/Media – General Audience
    • For Episode 6: When These Walls Come Tumbling Down
  • Best FX – TV/Media
    • For Episode 8: Oil and Water
  • Best Character Animation – TV/Media
    • For Episode 9: The Monster You Created
  • Best Character Design – TV/Media
    • For Episode 2: Some Mysteries Better Left Unsolved
  • Best Direction – TV/Media
    • For Episode 9: The Monster You Created
      • The directors on the episode include Pascal Charue, Arnaud Delord and Barthelemy Maunoury
  • Best Production Design – TV/Media
    • For Episode 4: Happy Progress Day!
  • Best Storyboarding – TV/Media
    • For Episode 6: When These Walls Come Tumbling Down
  • Best Voice Acting – TV/Media
    • For Episode 6: When These Walls Come Tumbling Down
  • Best Writing – TV/Media
    • For Episode 9: The Monster You Create

The awards mainly come down to the animation, the art of the show and storylines brought to life by French company Fortiche Productions. The awards also primarily focus on individual episodes within the series, as the final two episodes of the show represent the writing, directing and FX categories.

The award show is scheduled to begin on Feb. 26 in Royce Hall at the The University of California in Los Angeles.

“Arcane” has sent reverberations beyond the League of Legends community and has broken into the mainstream animation discourse. The show even ranked No. 1 on Netflix twice during its release over the course of three weekends.

A second season of “Arcane” is currently in production, as Riot Games has committed to multiple seasons with Netflix. Whether those future installments will be as popular, or awards present, is yet to be seen.
