BRAVE (Disney*Pixar)

Animated Feature Film

“We are incredibly honored by today’s Academy Award nomination. ‘Brave’ has been an adventure from the beginning – starting with our research trips to Scotland, the crew embarked upon a journey that inspired us all and forever changed our fates. Thanks to the Academy from all of us here at Pixar.”

– Mark Andrews, Director, “Brave”


Animated Feature Film

“’Frankenweenie’ is a very personal film for me. The idea of telling a feature length version was in the back of my mind for many years. Stop Motion was the perfect medium for this project, and one I’ve always loved for its expressiveness and dimensionality. I’ve worked with so many incredible artists: animators, cast members, set builders, and puppet makers, all who have helped bring this film to life one frame at a time. I’m so honored that the Academy has recognized this film as one of its nominees.”

– Tim Burton, Director “Frankenweenie”

WRECK-IT RALPH (Walt Disney Animation Studios)

Animated Feature Film

“To have the ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ team’s passion and years of hard work acknowledged by the Academy is an honor like no other. We are so proud, so grateful – I can’t wait to congratulate everyone in-person.”

– Rich Moore, Director “Wreck-It Ralph”

PAPERMAN (Walt Disney Animation Studios)

 Animated Short Film

“It’s beyond an honor to have ‘Paperman’ nominated for an Oscar. I can’t thank everyone on the team enough for their passion and hard work in making this dream project a reality.”

– John Kahrs, Director “Paperman”


 Visual Effects – Janek Sirrs, Jeff White, Guy Williams and Dan Sudick

The 85th Academy Awards will air live on ABC on Sunday, February 24. Visit Oscar.com for a complete list of the nominations.
