Wes Anderson gets animated for awards speech

Posted on

Wes Anderson gets cooler every day. When he won a prize at the National Board of Review this week, he did a stop-motion animation acceptance speech in the style of Fantastic Mr. Fox. It’s a very cute idea, but beyond that I love that in just this short clip he’s using those note-perfect details that made the film so great — like the sunglasses and mobile phone around his neck, that buddy on the left scurrying in with the award, and the showbunny having to guide him off stage. Someone please give Mr. Fox a few more awards so we can see furry friends at awards shows!
