We were so excited that Wall-E won last night's Oscar for Best Animated Film. It was also nominated for Original Score, Original Song "Down to Earth" by Peter Gabriel, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Original Screenplay. We really dig the little bot and as Director Andrew Stanton commented after winning the award, "It's a noble aspiration in times like these."
We think so, too. If you haven't seen it, now is the time. And if you have, it might be worth a re-viewing. There are some incredible bonus extras such as the short "Burn-E," deleted scenes and the excellent feature in which Sound Designer Ben Burtt describes how he created the sounds of Wall-E and pals.
