SC: Good evening peers and regular people.
KW: Steve and I play characters on the Despicable Me movies also we get our hair cut together.
SC: Sometimes we say I’ll do that.
KW: I’ll do that. I’ll just take what he has.
SC: I’ll have what she’s having, like the orgasm. We are so happy to present best animated film this evening.
KW: Yes, because we all love animated films. Do you remember the first time you saw an animated movie?
SC: I do actually, very well. It was kind of a big deal, I was six years old and my dad took me to see Fantasia. It was astounding, the music, the spectacle of the whole thing, it was kind of a life changing experience.
KW: Yeah, it’s a classic.
SC: And as we were leaving the theater, there standing in the lobby was my mom.and that was the moment she told my dad that she wanted a divorce. I never saw my father again after that day. Fantasia day. What about you? What was the first animated film you saw?
KW: Ahh, Bambi. March 14th 1981. It was the same day we had to put our dogs down. Three of them. Little Jack, Janet and Krissy. My grandpa thought it would be fun to go to the movie, take our minds off of it. Then You know, Bambi’s mom. And also that was the last day I saw my grandpa, he disappeared, he disappeared and I didn’t speak for two years.
SC: And the nominees are. . .
