Paranorman's Out Director
This category belongs to Disney this year with their three films Wreck-It-Ralph, Brave, and Frankenweenie leading the race to gold, but Paranorman (the most awarded animated film in 2012) really deserves more than an honorable mention. Gay writer and co-director Chris Butler's brilliant stop motion animation tale of a boy who sees ghosts and fights bullies was a delightful John Carpenter meets John Hughes treat, and featured the first out gay lead character in mainstream American animated movie.
