‘Once upon a time there was a freck­led­face lit­tle boy who told his mom and his dad that one day he was go­ing to work at Walt Dis­ney an­i­ma­tion. And they did some­thing amaz­ing; they sup­ported him and they be­lieved him and from the bot­tom of his heart, he thanks them.’

Dis­ney’s Big Hero 6 won the Best An­i­mated Fea­ture prize at the Academy Awards Feb. 22, the stu­dio’s sec­ond con­sec­u­tive win in the cat­e­gory, and its first sweep with Pa­trick Os­borne’s Feast win­ning the tro­phy for Best An­i­mated Short Film.

Mean­while, Christo­pher Nolan’s In­ter­stel­lar won the Best Vis­ual Ef­fects Os­car for the amaz­ingly pho­to­real in­cor­po­ra­tion of physics.

Back­stage, Big Hero 6 di­rec­tors Don Hall and Chris Wil­liams ad­dressed the chal­lenge of tack­ling the stu­dio’s first Marvel su­per­hero movie and craft­ing a heart­felt story be­tween the trou­bled teen and hug­gable ro­bot Bay­max.

Os­borne, who con­tin­ued Dis­ney’s tech­ni­cal vir­tu­os­ity by tak­ing hand-drawn and CG to the next level as a hy­brid, dis­cussed the pres­sures of div­ing into the very suc­cess­ful shorts pro­gram, which has now earned Os­cars for Paper­man as well as Feast.
