Gore Verbinski, Best Animated Feature
"It is an incredible honor to be nominated this morning. We set out to do something different with 'Rango,' and this distinction is a testament to everyone who tirelessly dedicated themselves to creating our neurotic lizard. 'Rango' was looking for an audience who shared his love of cinema and I’m humbled that he found one. It has been a remarkable journey, and one that I am grateful to share with our entire creative team, Paramount, and all of the virtuosos at Industrial, Light and Magic."
