Prepare for the Pixar clan after 'Brave' nomination
Posted January 10, 2013
Director Mark Andrews will honor Brave's Scottish setting by rocking a kilt at the Academy Awards, where Brave is nominated for best animated film.
And he's expecting fellow Pixar attendees such as chief creative officer John Lasseter (who will attend along with producer Katherine Sarafian) to do the same.
"I'm going to start a trend, the Oscar kilt. It's going to be very cool," says Andrews. "And the others better be. There's going to be a clan of kilts. We love to party and celebrate. This is never old hat to us."
Andrews says he will wear a specially-designed Brave kilt along with a formal Prince Charlie jacket, the decorative sporran and the belt.
"It's going to be pretty fancy," he promises.
And don't worry about any possible wardrobe malfunction.
"Only if I fall down or if I sit down onstage in a particular way would there be any surprises," he says. "I've been out in really stiff winds, but it's too heavy to blow up. I've even ran a sprint and you can see nothing."
Andrews admits he didn't watch the nominations Thursday morning.
"I'm not concerned about the awards. That doesn't get me out of my bed," he says. "For me, I get thrilled when the audience sees the movie and they've loved it. That means tons. To get the Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations, it confirms what has already happened in the public eye."
