And the Oscar Goes To....

A concept drawing of Woody from Toy Story

Storyboard from North by Northwest

A little Bruce Lee

One thing I didn't take pics of where the actual Oscar statues that they had there (Bad Blogger) but I did get lucky. They had this video montage of different films and I was lucky enough to take a pic of this one:

The Academy Award Museum in Los Angeles is a must when in the city.
