Friday Fun: Michael Giacchino

You might think that Fantastic Mr. Fox would be my favorite movie of 2009, given my overwhelming fondness for talking animals and George Clooney -- and the rarity of finding them together in one film.

However, you'd be wrong. Up was my favorite, and I was delighted last weekend when it won the Academy Award for Animated Feature Film. Unfortunately, my limited attention span and I had wandered by the time they handed out the Oscar for Music (Original Score) to Up's Michael Giacchino.

But here's the good news: Vanessa was paying attention! Thanks to her, we have today's fun moment -- Michael's brief acceptance speech, all about creativity. Enjoy! And if you haven't seen Up yet, do it. Do it now.

Thanks, Vanessa!

Such a great speech! And I loved the movie, too.

The music was great, as was the opening sequence, which quickly told the backstory in a highly creative and emotional way. Everyone who has ever had to put a dream on hold understood where the story was going.
