  • Ratatouille Wins Best Animated Feature Oscar

    As expected, Disney/Pixar's 'Ratatouille' won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film at Sunday night's Academy Awards. In his acceptance speech, Writer/Director Brad Bird made of point of thanking his junior high school guidance counselor.

    He asked me, "What do you want to do with your life?" And I said, "I want to make movies." And he said, "What else do you want to do with your life?" And I said, "Make movies," and he said, "What if you couldn't make movies," and I said, "I'd find a way that I could."

    "What if movies didn't exist?"

    "I'd have to invent them." And it went on like this until we were sick of each other and i only realized just recently that he gave me the perfect training for the movie business.

    Despite having three songs nominated for Best Song, Walt Disney Pictures' "Enchanted" failed to take home an Oscar, losing to the indie-film "Once" and its song "Falling Slowly." "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" was also shut out for Makeup and Visual Effects.

    I'm so happy Ratatouille won! I would have been so annoyed if another subpar penguin film would have won like last year. I still feel Cars was robbed!

    Yeah Remy!!! :yea:

        Glad Ratatouille won.

        Pirates was robbed of Best Visual Effects though.

          Haven't seen the Golden Compass yet...and I'm definitely bias, but I have to agree...

          Pirates of the Caribbean had amazing visual effects if only for the Maelstrom sequence. Simply incredible!

          Also...glad Ratatouille won. It's such a mature movie in many ways, I wish it could be recognized for more than just being "animated". I suppose you only get nominated for "best picture" if you explore the darker side of humanity.
