hugo: art direction, cinematograhy, sound editing, sound mixing, visual effects  should have also won: best directing, best picture

the visuals in hugo are magical, and the 3D makes it even more breathtakingly beautiful. it not only tells a deep and touching story, it’s a tribute to film itself, and celebrates imagination…critics all agreed it’s a family film that’s not just for children…”it’s serious, beautiful, wise to the absurdity of life and in the embrace of a piercing longing.”

rango: animated feature film

salvador dali meets the wild west. it is much more sophisticated than any animated film I’ve ever seen… the art is stunning and surreal, the dialogue is quick-witted…as one critic said it, “qualifies as a work of art in its own right”
