Franck Le Calvez argued that the lovable title character in "Finding Nemo" was based on his smiling orange-and-white clown fish named Pierrot.

"Finding Nemo," Disney's Pixar Animation Studios' blockbuster film, has already been reincarnated as an ice show spectacular. Next up: "Finding Nemo -- The Musical." Written by Tony Award-winning "Avenue Q" composer Robert Lopez and his wife, "Along the Way" composer Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the all-new production will open at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., in late 2006. Peter Brosius, artistic director of the Tony Award-winning Children's Theatre of Minneapolis, is slated to direct.

Winning the Academy Award for best animated feature film Sunday evening wasn't a sure thing for "Finding Nemo." Disney/Pixar's heartwarming father-son fish tale had been considered the shoo-in for Oscar gold until the November release of the quirky animated film "The Triplets of Belleville," which fast became the critics' darling. So Pixar and Disney probably breathed a big sigh of relief when "Nemo" was named the best animated feature of 2003.

"Finding Nemo" dominated the Annie Awards on Saturday night at the animation industry's annual gala, winning nine, including best animated feature. That the film made by Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures took so many nods may not have been much of a surprise, but host Steve Marmel began razzing Pixar's soon-to-be ex-partner before a single award was handed out.

"Finding Nemo" was the best reviewed movie of 2003, according to RottenTomatoes.com, a film-oriented website that specializes in gathering and warehousing reviews from critics around the country. Its year-end rankings, released this week, are based on both the quality and enthusiasm of reviews a film received.

They were half asleep and 400 miles from the Beverly Hills hoopla, but even in hype-averse Northern California -- even with a blockbuster like Pixar Animation Studios' "Finding Nemo" -- a fistful of Oscar nominations is something to celebrate. Director Andrew Stanton sneaked out of bed while his kids slept to watch the 5:30 a.m. announcements in his pajamas. Co-director Lee Unkrich jumped off his elliptical trainer when he heard the news.
