Kristina Reed, the pro­ducer of the Acad­emy Award Win­ning ani­mated short Paper­man was escorted from her seat at the awards show shortly after her film won the cov­eted stat­uette. It seems that in her exu­ber­ant mood to cel­e­brate the win, Ms. Reed took to mak­ing paper air­planes, apply­ing a lip-stick kiss, and send­ing the planes into the audi­ence around her.

For those not so famil­iar with the short Paper­man, paper air­planes are an inte­gral part of the plot… and bright red lip­stick also is an impor­tant visual. No doubt, Ms. Reed’s reac­tion was only over-exuberant fun on her part.

From her seat in the bal­cony, some of the planes report­edly fell to the main floor. Secu­rity escorted the pro­ducer from her seat and out­side the Dolby The­ater. There she was warned that her paper air­plane mak­ing fra­cas would go down on her per­ma­nent record.

After approx­i­mately 10 min­utes, Ms. Reed was allowed back to her seat.

If you haven’t seen the Oscar win­ning short, please watch in here. And then let us know what you think– are paper air­planes dan­ger­ous, or was Ms. Reed jus­ti­fied in her celebration?
