Andrew Stanton, writer/director of WALL•E, accepting the award for Best Picture from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association last night:
It’s huge for us, huge. We’ve been trying since Toy Story to just make a film, and not have the word animated suddenly stick it in a different box. I mean to us, it’s no different than choosing black and white or color on something. So, that shouldn’t dictate the content. And, it’s nice to just finally break the glass ceiling.
