Today is an incredible day. Our short doc, Body Team 12, got nominated for a friggin Oscar! I am so insanely proud of @daviddarg and @brynmooser for making this outstanding film about true heroism in the face of hopelessness. They deserve this honor completely and I'm so lucky to be their producer. Aahhhhhhhh!!!!!! #bodyteam12 @ryotnews
#insideout nominated for best animated film and screenplay! I am so proud of this movie. The artists behind it thought exploring inside a young girls mind was something people would respond to, and they were right. Congratulations to Pete Docter, Jonas Rivera, Meg LeFauve, Josh Cooley, Ronnie del Carmen. Love you guys. Hope you're drenched in champagne in Emeryville. 💛💙❤️💜💚
