Cars director John Lasseter spoke afterwards about the large number of animated films released in 2006. “I love animation. I’m a big supporter and I’m so excited about how many animated films were released this year – sixteen animated films were released this year – and its thrilling to see that… I’m just so proud to win this award for everyone at Pixar… It’s a shame we all have to compete because I love animation and I love the fact that all these great film makers like [Happy Feet‘s]George Miller are starting to work in animation. The water’s warm! Everybody come on in! Animation is fun!”
