Though many expected it to do better, the third Pirates installment didn’t go out to sea empty-handed. The pic’s Maelstrom sequence took Outstanding Created Environment, while the fully digital Davy Jones was voted Outstanding Animated character in a Live-Action Motion Picture. The team of Hal Hickle, Marc Chu, Jakub Pistecky and Maria Kayer shared in that particular achievement.
What was impressive was the awards hauled in by "Ratatouille", even though it isn't technically big on traditional special visual effects.
Speaking of animated characters, Disney/Pixar’s Ratatouille did quite well for what few would consider a traditional vfx film. Director Brad Bird was on hand as a presenter and got to see his movie snatch up three big awards. The CG comedy took Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Motion Picture, while the various food items shown earned it Outstanding Effects Animation in an Animated Motion Picture. In addition, the character Colette, voiced by Janeane Garofalo, was named Outstanding Animated Character in an Animated Motion Picture. Jamie Landes, Sonoko Konishi and Paul Aichele accepted the award. Comedian and actor Patton Oswaldt, who lent his voice to lead rat Remy in the film, put in a rousing appearance as a presenter.
This is, of course, in addition to the award "Ratatouille" got from the Producers Guild Award as the best produced animated feature.
There are simply a lot of indications that "Ratatouille" will go down as one of the best movies of all time.
