  • Disney left in dust in 'Cars' spiel = Los Angeles Times, 1/16/07

    PIXAR'S John Lasseter was effusive in his thank-yous after "Cars" won the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.'s inaugural animated feature award on Monday night, but did he inadvertently sideswipe the company's Southland sibling?

    Lasseter, the new chief creative director of both Pixar and Burbank-based Walt Disney Feature Animation Studios, doled out thanks to the voters, his Pixar pals, his wife and five kids, voice actors Tony Shalhoub and Paul Newman, producer Darla K. Anderson, recently deceased creative partner Joe Ranft, songwriter Sheryl Crow and composer Randy Newman.

    But not a mention of Disney, the embattled Burbank division he now oversees and where he has worked two to three days a week since the studio acquired Pixar in April. (Disney's historic 'toon division, where Lasseter got his start as a young animator in the early '80s, has recently seen a production slowdown and a spate of pink slips.)

    "I want to share this with everyone at Pixar Animation Studios, the greatest filmmaking environment in the entire world," Lasseter said, noting that "Cars" had been a passion project for six years.

    Lasseter's boss, Walt Disney Studios President and Chief Executive Bob Iger, who was in the audience, was also left off Lasseter's lengthy list.

    Did any of the other winners thank their studios? I don't think so.

      Well, when Julie Andrews won her best actress award for Mary Poppins, she thanked Jack Warner for making it all possible. So, nothing new in forgetting the studio.

      Besides, Disney was more figurehead in the involvement with making the film. It was a Pixar film, after all. That was who was most important.
