Oscar Time!

It’s Oscar time! Disney comes in strong and stop motion is this years darling.

This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for this years Oscars. There are two main areas of competition for animation, the Feature Length and the short awards. This year, the nominees are…

In a word, Disney. The perennial animation powerhouse leads the field with three films in consideration for Best Animated Feature. Perhaps even more surprising is that DreamWorks best hope- Rise Of The Guardians- was left out altogether. Also interesting is that there are three stop-motion features in the list this year, in a short field of only five films.

For Best Animated Feature, the nominees are:

Brave- Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman
Frankenweenie- Tim Burton
ParaNorman- Sam Fell, Chris Butler
The Pirates! Band of Misfits- Peter Lord
Wreck-It Ralph- Rich Moore

The field for Best Animated Short Film is a diverse field, as usual. The nominees here are:

Adam And Dog- Minkyu Lee
Fresh Guacamole- PES
Head Over Heels- Timothy Reckart, Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly
The Longest Daycare- David Silverman
Paperman- John Kahrs

The Oscar nominations for the 85th Academy Awards were announced this morning by Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone. The announcements were made at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, 2013, at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood California and hosted by Seth MacFarlane. This year, the Oscar show also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
