Today, I will begin posting, in three parts, the official video of the First Golden Awards Banquet. The first banquet honored 41 people and, though only 36 showed up, it was a huge success.

Today’s postings of chats from the The Animation Guild’s 1986 Golden Awards Banquet focuses on two veterans who made their name in areas often ignored: background art and special effects animation.
Morey Zukor and Al Bertino are two relatively unsung animation artists; the former’s career was overshadowed by his older brother, while the latter toiled in shorts and worked on various Disneyland attractions.
Lavelle Haines and Celine Miles, two women who were among the largely unsung grunts of the animation industry: final checkers and ink and paint artists.
Given their history, it is also almost inconceivable that Frank and Ollie could be written about other than as a team. They are also among the few animators who have gained a measure of public recognition.
