“Put your faith in what you most believe in, two worlds, one family. Trust your heart, let fate decide to guide these lives we see.”

It was the soundtrack for the 37th animated feature film released by Walt Disney Animation Studios. The songs were written by singer-songwriter Phil Collins, with score composed by Mark Mancina.

“…my group of animators represent your cast of actors that are your invisible actors, your shy actors, and they are a huge part of the charm of WALL-E.” – Andrew Stanton

On January 11, 2009, the 66th Golden Globe awards were held in the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Pixar’s WALL-E was nominated for three awards: Best Original Song (“Down to Earth”), Best Animated Film, and Best Score. The film took home the award for Best Animated Feature, beating out DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda and Disney’s Bolt. After receiving the award, WALL-E director Andrew Stanton said of the film, “What’s interesting is that on [Finding Nemo] it was so huge that I didn’t think that would ever happen again, so it gave me sort of a courage to go, ‘Well, I’m going to make something really eccentric to my tastes that will probably speak to a minority,’ and it’s just ironic that was probably the smartest thing I could have done as far as getting more acclaim and more attention. It was made out of such pure love of cinema, and it’s just really fulfilling for me to see so many people like it for the same reasons I wanted to make it.”
