The animated film Inside Out, directed by Pete Docter will receive the Hollywood Animation Award at The 19th Annual Hollywood Film Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, on November 1, 2015.
The Hollywood Animation Award will be accepted by Inside Out director Pete Docter. The Pixar family film received rave reviews by children and adults and stars Amy Poehler, Bill Hared, Lewis Black and Mindy Kaling.
Disney Pixar’s “Inside Out” ventures “inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind. Based in Headquarters, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned-both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else,” reads the official synopsis.
“When Riley’s family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind-taking some of her core memories with them-Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places-Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions-in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.”
