Oscar nomination response statements received by AnimeSuperhero:

TREVOR JIMENEZ (WRITER/DIRECTOR) – “WEEKENDS”
Hard to express in words, with all the feelings going on right now, but it was such a special moment watching with my wife, my mom (via skype) and our dog. Something I’ll never forget. I feel indebted to them, my family and close friends for all their support and a huge thank you to everyone that worked on ‘Weekends’ with me in and outside Pixar and to all the voters in the Academy for including us with this wonderful group of films. Mind blown.

LOUISE BAGNALL (Writer/Director) AND NURIA GONZÁLEZ BLANCO (Producer) – “LATE AFTERNOON”
Wow!! We’re over the moon to be nominated, huge thank you to the Academy! It’s been an amazing journey and we couldn’t have done this without the support from everyone at Cartoon Saloon, Screen Ireland and RTÉ. The whole team worked so hard on the film and we wouldn’t be here without them, thank you guys! We are so excited to be heading to the Oscars, but tonight we’re going to celebrate with the crew!

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not). Comics, toys, Apple Macintosh computers, video games, and eBay
