Nominated for Best Animated Short
“We’re beside ourselves right now, and just incredibly happy. Happy for the film and happy for all our fantastic collaborators here in Berlin, our producers at Magic Light, as well as our wonderful team in South Africa. It’s a pretty unreal feeling to find your labour of love has been recognised in this way. We’re deeply grateful to the Academy for this nomination. This was a hard film to make. What always steered us forward was the level of love our team had for this story – and the blessings we received from Luke Kelly, Roald Dahl’s grandson, and from the great Quentin Blake. So, for everyone’s work to receive such love in return today, it’s the most beautiful reward. When we were making the film we often didn’t have time to stop to eat – so now we’ll go to one of the restaurants we always wanted to go to, for a celebratory dinner! Thank you to the Academy for this nomination, it means the world to us!
— Jakob Schuh and Jan Lachauer, Directors of “Revolting Rhymes”
“We’re so thrilled that Revolting Rhymes has been recognised with an Oscar nomination. It’s amazing. It’s always such an honor to be recognized by the Academy in this way. The nomination is a great tribute to the brilliant work of the directors, Jakob Schuh and Jan Lachauer, and the entire crew who worked on the film.”
