Waiting my turn to speak with Javier Mariscal who nominated for Chico and Rita.
I know my posts are all out of order now, but I can't keep anything straight and my producer/editor, JD, is working his fingers off to edit all of the pieces as fast and furious as humanly possible. We were able to attend the Animated Feature Symposium which honored the work of the five nominees in this category. Not all of the nominees were in attendance, but we were able to speak with the nominees from Kung FuPanda 2, Chico and Rita, and A Cat in Paris. The diversity of the nominees speaks volumes about the sophistication of animation in this decade and we certainly do not see a Pixar nominee in the bunch this year. They normally dominate this category, but Cars 2 did not make the final list. Check out our two minute highlight video of the evening:
