Wes Anderson’s Stop Motion Acceptance Speech

The National Board of Review had their annual awards ceremony last night and one of the honorees was Wes Anderson, who won a “Special Filmmaking Achievement” award for his movie The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Instead of going to the event and giving a standard speech, Mr. Anderson decided to create a stop-motion acceptance, taking up the role of the weasel that he played in the movie. It’s a clever way to go about it, and makes me want to watch the movie all over again.
