Travis Knight, "ParaNorman" producer (Best Animated Feature)
"My heartfelt thanks to the Academy for honoring LAIKA and 'ParaNorman' with this nomination. Working with our directors Chris Butler and Sam Fell and my fellow producer Arianne Sutner to bring 'ParaNorman' to audiences worldwide has been the most rewarding experience of my professional life. We’re indebted to Focus Features and Universal Pictures for their advocacy and resolve, to our exceptional cast members for their keenly felt performances, and above all to our unparalleled, extraordinarily talented crew for handcrafting a moving and beautiful work of art."
