For those of you who might have been living in a cave (but have internet access to see this blog from said cave) the Oscars were last night.  Pixar went into last night’s event with 5 nominations for 2009’s “Up”, including “Best Picture”.

Pixar’s team ended “Up” (forgive me for the bad pun) taking away 2 awards last night for their work.

Winner: Best Animated Feature Film (Pete Docter)
Winner: Best Original Score (Michael Giacchino)

I have been a big fan of Giacchino’s work ever since The Incredibles and was even more impressed when the folks at Disney had him score the soundtrack for Disneyland’s soon to be reopened Space Mountain back in 2005.

Congratulations to the entire Disney/Pixar team for all their amazing work on yet another great film.  Can’t wait for Toy Story 3 and John Carter of Mars!
