Pixar, famous for blending technology and movie making, brought home Oscar gold yet again, scoring a best animated feature film award for "Brave."
It's the Emeryville's studio's 27th Oscar; not bad when you consider that even in a big year, it cranks out one feature film. It has dominated the animated feature category lately, winning five of the last six awards.
Like Merida, the red-haired heroine of 'Brave," Pixar has been successfully aiming at hardware for years.
Unlike Merida, though, the studio hasn't yet made it through to the biggest prize, a best picture Oscar.
Still, Pixar has had a great run run. The company tells NBC Bay Area employees plan to celebrate when the directors get back home, complete with Scottish kilts, befitting a movie set in Scotland.
It was an especially strong year for Pixar's parent company, Disney, when it comes to animation. In addition to "Brave," two other Disney offerings, "Wreck-It-Ralph" and "Frankenweenie" were also up for the animation Oscar.
No fashion, no stumbles, no famous speeches; For Pixar, it's just constant domination of its category. And lots and lots of golden statues.
