No Time For Nuts gets an Oscar Nomination!

The entire studio was buzzing today about the Oscar Nomination that No Time For Nuts got in the Best Animated Short Film category. A huge congrats to the Directors, Mike Thurmeier and Chris Renaud and of course the entire Blue Sky crew that worked on it immediately following the Ice Age 2 wrap-up! Awesome work fellas...I'm proud to be apart of it!

Here is the full list of nominees in the Animated Shorts category:
  • THE DANISH POET
  • LIFTED
  • THE LITTLE MATCHGIRL
  • MAESTRO
  • NO TIME FOR NUTS (woot!)
Sadly, Ice Age 2 wasn't nominated for Best Animated Feature...but we'll get them next time with Horton Hears A Who!
