Wes Anderson's Animated Acceptance Speech

A new year means awards season is upon us once again. Pixar's Up had a good night at the Golden Globes, taking home the prizes for Best Animated Feature Film and Best Original Score. But the film has plenty of competition for future awards from movies like the critically acclaimed Fantastic Mr. Fox, which recently earned director Wes Anderson a Special Filmmaking Achievement Award from the National Board of Review. Anderson decided to use his acceptance speech pay tribute to not only the people who made the film with him, but also the medium itself. I really like animation that imitates the awkward qualities of live conversation, so I really enjoyed this break from the acceptance speech norm.
