A well deserved win for Disney Pixar’s Brave movie of the Best Animated Feature at the Oscar awards last night. Some felt it was not the favorite to win against fellow Disney movie nominees Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie and Disney’s Wreck it Ralph films. The two other Oscar nominees were Laika/Focus Features’ “ParaNorman” and Sony’s “The Pirates! Band of Misfits.”
But Princess Merida triumphed over all and took home the golden statue. Well perhaps not Merida herself but co directors Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman on her behalf.
If you haven’t yet seen this Pixar movie it is now available on DVD at:
Pixar has an amazing history of wins at the Oscar Ceremony over the years. The win for Brave gave Pixar it’s 27th Oscar. A remarkable achievement for a relatively young studio, and even more remarkable when you consider that in the last six years it has won the Best Animated Feature Academy Award five times. Finding Nemo” (2003), “The Incredibles” (2004), “Ratatouille” (2007), “Wall-E” (2008), “Up” (2009) and “Toy Story 3” (2010) have all won the Best Animated Feature Oscar for Pixar.
It was a great night for Disney at the 2013 Oscars as they also picked up the award for Best Animated Short for the movie Paperman. The producer of Paperman Kristina Reed was escorted out of her seat by security for reportedly throwing paper planes, like the ones in the movie. Security at the event were not entertained, even though the planes had kisses on the , just as they do in the movie! It seems that they relented though and she was back in her seat within 10 minutes.
Paperman is a black and white animated movie which tells the story of a man who tries to attract the attention of a woman by flying paper airplanes. It is a beautiful story which was originally shown in theaters with Wreck it Ralph. If you want to see this delightful movie you can get this as a bonus to Wreck-It Ralph (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
