Toy Story 3 wins gold!

Hey bloggers!  I just wanted to take a quick minute to congratulate my friends and co-workers who lent a hand working on Toy Story 3 which won the Best Animated film Oscar this past sunday.  I didn't get a  chance to work on the film myself but I was able to work on several promo spots so I still feel deeply attached the success and warm reception of the movie.

All the awards in the world would mean nothing without my friends with whom I have learned and grown so much since I've gotten to work here at Pixar.

Lee was such a generous guy, taking the time to share the Oscar with everyone in the company, especially after barely recovering from the frantic craziness of the Academy Awards.

Once again, a HUGE thanks to all the fans and everyone out there who embraced the film and its characters.  It's been a fun ride!
