"How to Train Your Dragon 2"
Over three years ago, we started this journey on a research trip to Norway and Svalbard. As a filmmaker, what has been so gratifying is to have had the experience of traveling all over the world and seeing how Toothless and Hiccup have resonated with audiences. I'm so proud of our cast and crew and also want to congratulate the other nominees. It's been a great year for animation and I'm humbled to be in their company. Today's nomination from the Hollywood Foreign Press is the icing on the cake of an amazing year for us - so thanks to all at the HFPA for a great wake-up call. - Dean DeBlois, Writer / Director, "How to Train Your Dragon 2," nominated for Best animated feature film
"What a great way to wake up! I can't wait to get to the studio and celebrate with our crew. It seems like yesterday when we debuted this film overseas at Cannes and then at the Annecy Film Festival. To see the reaction from international artists and audiences was overwhelming and today, to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press, is such wonderful feeling. I am so proud of our director/writer Dean DeBlois and to see his passion for the characters and vision for telling such a heartfelt story honored with a nomination. Thanks to everyone at the HFPA for making our day!" - Bonnie Arnold, Producer, "How to Train Your Dragon 2"
