Finding Nemo Director

Director

Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich

Okay, Andrew Stanton's not just the writer on this movie—he's also the director, too. Finding Nemo marked Stanton's directorial debut, but he had some help from fellow Pixar co-director, Lee Unkrich. Both Stanton and Unkrich had been with Pixar since the early days, so it made sense to have them team up for this undersea adventure. The pairing paid off when Finding Nemo won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

Not too shabby.

Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich would both go on to have pretty impressive careers at Pixar. Stanton directed WALL-E and Finding Dory, while Unkrich got to sit in the director's chair again for Toy Story 3 and the Día de los Muertos -inspired movie Coco.
