BAFTA Inside Out

The 2016 BAFTA Awards (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) took place last night in Central London and Pixar Animation Studios was honored in two categories – Best Original Screenplay and Best Animated Feature.

The studio was awarded the win for Best Animated Feature with director Pete Docter taking the stage and sharing some inspirational advice during his acceptance speech, “It’s okay to feel scared or angry or sad but please do us a favor and express yourself…sing, write, draw — the world will be a better place for it.”

View Pete’s entire acceptance speech in the video below (Pete takes the stage at time mark 2:20). (UPDATED: – unfortunately, the acceptance speech has been taken down. It was originally uploaded to the official BAFTA YouTube page and they took it down for an unknown reason.)

Additionally, there is a brief video of Pete chatting backstage after the win at the bottom of the post as well.
