It is always an early morning when the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announces Oscar nominees, but if you are one of those nominees, the morning is likely to be a bit easier to handle. La Luna is Pixar’s representative at the Academy Awards this year, which has the director of the short, Enrico Casarosa, “over the moon.” He released a statement thanking the Academy and expressing his gratitude. Read on to check out his full statement.
EW has collected a list of nominee reactions, in which Casarosa states:
”La Luna is a deeply personal story for me, and to have it recognized by the Academy is an honor both profound and exhilarating. I know this also means so much to the crew, who believed in this whimsical idea and brought it to life with amazing talent and expertise. On behalf of all of them, I’d like to thank the Academy. This must certainly be how it feels to be over the moon!”
