Silvergate Media is celebrating a trio of award wins at the prestigious 2019 Annie Awards for its Netflix animated adventure TV series, Hilda.

Hilda was crowned Best Animated TV Production for Children in addition to scooping awards for Character Animation and Writing for an Animated TV/Broadcast Production, making it the most-awarded TV series of the night. The 46th Annie Awards ceremony took place on Saturday 2 February.

“We are truly delighted that Hilda has been recognised for its outstanding achievement”, says Waheed Alli, Silvergate Media’s chief executive. “When we set out to make Hilda we had a clear vision, inspired by Luke Eisner’s extraordinary comics, for an animated children’s series that set the bar high in terms of storytelling and animation and would give audiences something truly special. These award wins are testament to the dedication of the creative team at Mercury Films and we’re honoured to be taking home trophies in every nominated category.”


Co-produced by Silvergate Media and Mercury Films, the 2D animation follows the adventures of a fearless blue-haired girl as she travels from her home in a vast magical wilderness full of elves and giants, to the bustling city of Trolberg, where she meets new friends and mysterious creatures.

Hilda is now available in 130 countries on Netflix, and Silvergate is currently lining up FTA broadcasters for the show. The stunningly animated 13 x 22-minute episodes from series 1, aimed at kids aged six to 11 years, feature the voice talents of Game of Thrones’ Bella Ramsey in the title role of Hilda and a theme song by Grimes.
