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.
