88th Oscars Onstage Speech Transcript: Animated Feature Film

CATEGORY: Animated Feature Film
SPEECH BY: Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera
FILM: Inside Out




We are so lucky. Not just us, but everyone in this room, because, regardless of a gold man or not, we get to make stuff.



Right, we do. And on this film, every single storyboard, every single frame, cut, line of dialogue, every single pixel, was done by the amazing artists we work with at Pixar, led by John Lasseter. They should be up here with us tonight. We love them. Along with our amazing cast—best cast ever assembled, animated or otherwise—we love you.



We want to thank our wives: Amanda…






Our kids. This film was really born from watching our kids grow up, which is not easy. Anyone out there who’s in junior high, high school, working it out, suffering. There are days you’re gonna feel sad, you’re gonna feel angry, you’re gonna be scared. That’s nothing you can choose, but you can make stuff. Make films. Draw. Write. It’ll make a world of difference.
