It was an animated night for Inside Out!
Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera accepted the honor with an inspirational speech. Docter said the film was born from watching kids grow up, “which is not easy.”
“Anyone out there who’s in junior high, high school, suffering, there are days you’re going to feel sad, you’re going to feel angry, you’re going to feel scared, that’s nothing you can choose,” he said. “But you can make stuff. Make film, draw, write. It’ll make a world of difference.”
Inside Out faced off against Anomalisa, Boy and the World, Shaun the Sheep Movie and When Marnie was There.
The 88th annual Awards, hosted by Chris Rock, are being presented live on ABC from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California.
