Fresh of the studio's seventh Best Animated Feature Oscar win on Sunday night, Pixar had a rather boisterous celebration today. Co-director Mark Andrews and producer Katherine Sarafian paraded the statuette around, celebrating with Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton and what seemed to be the entire Pixar family! ABC7 News were present to record the proceedings and get a word or two from MAndrews.
Once again, congrats to everyone who worked on Brave on the colossal achivement.
The Emeryville-based studio will surely be hoping to make that eight wins in a year's time, when Monsters University may well be vying for the animation prize! The original Monsters, Inc. was nominated in The Oscars' inaugural Best Animated Feature category, but lost out to DreamWorks' Shrek.
Empire today rolled out a moster-packed poster for Monsters U, showing off a lot of the characters we met in the previous batch of posters, as well as some familiar faces from the 2001 original -- is that George Sanderson I spy waving an MU flag? This is going to be a helluva lot of fun!
Monsters University opens with The Blue Umbrella on 21st June (US) and 12th July (UK).
