Apple CEO Steve Jobs is celebrating receiving an Oscar today after The Incredibles – the animated film made by his other company Pixar – picked up the award for the best animated feature film.

Director Brad Bird accepted the award with thanks to the "holy trinity of Pixar, my good friend John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, and Steve Jobs for making the greatest studio on the face of the earth."

He also thanked the Disney marketing team. The two companies will be parting company now that the contract that saw Pixar create films and Disney help market them has come to an end.

The other nominees in the category were Dreamworks' Shark Tale and Shrek 2.
