To stand on the same stage as three of my biggest animation heroes, Brad Bird, John K and Glen Keane...Unbelievable!
Here's what I wanted to say last night, but forgot the instant I stepped up to the podium:
An award like this belongs to the entire crew, so I'd like to thank everyone - both at home and abroad, who worked so hard to make something we can all be proud of.
I would like to give a special thanks to our friends at Boulder Media for giving us the best animation on TV.
Also a special thanks to Shawn Patterson for his beautiful music.
A big thank you to Tim Yoon, the World's Greatest Line Producer.
And a big thank you to Jorge and Sandra for letting us not just work on, but really be a part of their wonderful creation.
A few pictures:
