Futurama producer and writer Patric Verrone was honored with the Animation Writing Award by the Animation Writers Caucus of the Writers Guild of America.
The award is targeted at the person of Patric himself and shows how much his work (and that's Futurama to a big extend in the last years) is valued by people in the business who do have a clue:
"Patric's talents as a writer are matched by his passion for the craft and for the years he has poured his time and energy into advancing the status and rights of animation writers"
-- Victoria Riskin, pres. of WGA
Congrats from our side, too!
"His work in daytime and primetime animation, in particular his writing for Futurama, have always been of the highest quality."
-- Craig Miller, AWC chair
