Animation Writer Nicole Dubuc Receives WGAW Career Achievement Award

Congratulations to Nicole Dubuc, writer on Star Wars: Rebels and Star Wars: Forces of Destiny to name just a couple of things she’s been involved with, who received a WGAW Career Achievement Award last week.

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.

Dubuc has written more than 150 produced scripts and worked in a wide variety of formats, including musicals, books, comics, shorts, live-action, feature films, and television. Spanning multiple genres, her animation series writing credits include Hasbro’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (executive producer/story editor), Disney’s My Friends Tigger & Pooh (story editor), Star Wars: Rebels, Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, LEGO Elves (EP/story editor), and Sunny Day, as well as The Octonauts, Miles from Tomorrowland, Spooksville, Young Justice, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Marvel Superhero Squad, Transformers: Prime, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, The Spectacular Spider-Man, Hero 108, Ben 10: Alien Force, Care Bears: Adventures in Care-A-Lot, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Finley the Fire Engine, Eon Kid, Catscratch, JoJo’s Circus, Tak and the Power of JuJu (staff writer), and Gaspard and Lisa, as story consultant. Her early TV animation writing credits include Dragon Tales, Jackie Chan Adventures, ToddWorld, Pinky Dinky Doo, and The Zula Patrol.
