- On a strictly personal note, I couldn’t be happier for my friend, John Canemaker. He’s a fabulous person who’s continued making films for many years. His enormous and deserved success in animation history only informs the films he’s done. This film had to have been difficult for him to make, and I’m absolutely pleased at the success it’s having.
I’m also happy to see another 2D animated film, Badgered, nominated. Two out the five nominations are 2D, and the predominance of cgi is gone from these categories. None of the cgi features made it. This is interesting.
