Pixar Animation Studios (also known as simply Pixar) (/pksr/) is an American computer animation studio based in Emeryville, California, a subsidiary of Walt Disney Studios (owned by The Walt Disney Company). Pixar began in 1979 as part of the Lucasfilm computer division, when it was called the Graphics Group, before its spin-off as a corporation on February 3, 1986, with funding from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who became the majority shareholder. Although the company started with short films, Pixar is best known for producing high quality, visually impressive CGI-animated feature films technologically powered by RenderMan, the company’s own implementation of the industry-standard RenderMan Interface Specification image-rendering application programming interface. A character from the studio’s 1986 short film of the same name, is the studio’s mascot. Pixar has produced 21 feature films, beginning with Toy Story in 1995, which was the first-ever computer-animated feature film; its most recent film was Toy Story 4 (2019). All of the studio’s films have debuted with CinemaScore ratings of at least an “A, ” which indicates a positive reception with audiences. The studio has also produced dozens of short films. Moreover, 15 of Pixar’s films are in the 50 highest-grossing animated films of all time. The studio has earned 19 Academy Awards, 8 Golden Globe Awards, and 11 Grammy Awards, along with numerous other awards and acknowledgments. Many of Pixar’s films have been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, since its inauguration in 2001, with the nine Pixar winners being: Finding Nemo (2003), The Incredibles (2004), Ratatouille (2007), WALL-E (2008), Up (2009), Toy Story 3 (2010), Brave (2012), Inside Out (2015), and Coco (2017); the three that were nominated for the award without winning it are Monsters, Inc. (2001), Cars (2006), and Incredibles 2 (2018). In addition to that award, Up and Toy Story 3 were also the second and third animated films, respectively, to be nominated for the more inclusive Academy Award for Best Picture (the first being Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Beauty and the Beast in 1991).
