While everyone else on the planet was watching the overly long and indulgent Oscars, Animax Entertainment was indulging in an Odyssey of our own at the LA North ADDY ceremony held at Odyssey restaurant in Granada Hills.

Seems like Cirque Du Soleil isn’t so creative after all! The new name of their NYC show is the same name Animax uses for its employee newsletter – Banana Shpeel – and we used it starting in 2007!
