Disney/Pixar's Ed Catmull takes Oscar for lifetime of computer animation work

CNBC is reporting that Pixar co-founder Ed Catmull accepted an Oscar statuette Saturday night for a lifetime of work in computer animation.

He said he was inspired by early Disney films "Peter Pan" and "Pinocchio," then name-dropped collaborators George Lucas, Steve Jobs and Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter.

Nine other men were honored at the annual scientific and technical awards ceremony, which put a spotlight on the geekier side of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

We can only hope that Pixar will fare better than they did at the Annies, when they got totally snubbed.
