  • 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.
    More comments from Brad Bird courtesy of's "Thank You Cam":

    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.
