Wall-E Director Collects LAFCA Prize, Blasts Haters


The Los Angeles Film Critics Association handed out its awards last night, and Wall-E director Andrew Stanton was on-hand to collect the movie's much-deserved prize for Best Picture. "It's huge for us, huge," he told the crowd. "We've been trying since Toy Story to just make a film, and not have the word animated suddenly stick it in a different box. I mean to us, it's no different than choosing black and white or color on something. So, that shouldn't dictate the content. And, it's nice to just finally break the glass ceiling."
