Nicole Dubuc, one of the writers of Star Wars Rebels and Forces of Destiny has received the WGAW Career Achievement Award.
Prolific animation writer-producer-actress Nicole Dubuc (Transformers: Rescue Bots, Star Wars: Rebels, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, My Friends Tigger & Pooh) received the Writers Guild of America West‘s 2018 Animation Writers Caucus Animation Writing Award at Monday night’s annual AWC awards ceremony and member meeting at the Guild’s Los Angeles headquarters.
Eliza Hart, Director of Development and Current Series at Nickelodeon Animation, presented the Guild’s AWC career achievement award to Dubuc in recognition of her contributions to the animation field.
“Nicole Dubuc has accomplished more in her time as an animation writer than most of us do in careers that are twice as long. She has crossed genres, busted barriers, and broken through ceilings not only as a writer, but also as a showrunner, an actress, and a labor leader. If there’s an aspect of animation production Nicole hasn’t mastered, it’s only because she hasn’t invented it yet,” said WGAW President David A. Goodman.
“Nicole Dubuc richly deserves this award. She’s not only an extremely talented writer and showrunner but has extensively given her time and energy to work for the betterment of all animation writers. Plus she’s one of the best people I know,” said AWC Chair Craig Miller.
