Wes Anderson's stop-motion acceptance speech

(via) Wes Anderson's adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Fantastic Mr. Fox was one of my favorite movies of 2009, and a strong contender for the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. (And for a year that contained gems like Up and The Princess and the Frog, that's saying something.) And it's already started racking up awards, including the National Board of Review's "Special Filmmaking Achievement."

I think it's only fitting that the acceptance speech that Anderson sent to the NBR should be in the same medium of the film the award is recognizing, don't you?

If you haven't seen The Fantastic Mr. Fox yet, by all means do. And pick up the soundtrack, while you're at it, which has been on a continuous loop in our family car for the better part of the last month.
