2013 Oscars: Disney Celebrates 17 Nominations!

In this-totally-isn’t-shocking-at-all news this week, Disney has received 17 Oscar nominations this week- with 12 nominations for “Lincoln” alone. Since I first saw Lincoln during the #DisneyMoviesEvent trip in September, I’ve known it was going to win this year so now it’s just a matter of time! I do have to say that I’m surprised Wreck-It Ralph & The Avengers didn’t get more nominations, and it’ll be interesting to see who comes out the Best Animated Feature since there are 3 Disney movies included in the category {“Brave”, “Frankenweenie” & “Wreck-It Ralph”}.

Here is the full list of Disney nominations, including reactions from those tied to the films:

“I’m spinning and beyond thrilled on so many levels.  To be included in this amazing group of extraordinary craftsman and exquisite talents has been an honor in itself.  But now for us all  to receive so much recognition from the Academy I’m deeply appreciative and overwhelmed, and basically, I still can’t believe I got the role."

- Sally Field (Supporting Actress)

“I’m tremendously honored to be a nominee in the company of so many writers and filmmakers whose work I admire. I’m very grateful to Steven and Kathy, to Daniel, Sally, Tommy Lee and the whole cast, to Rick, Joanna, Janusz, Mike and John and everyone who made Lincoln happen. I’m overwhelmed by the Academy’s response to the film.  I heard that I’d been nominated while waiting to take off on a plane from JFK to LAX. James Gandolfini, who’s sitting in front of me, gave me a hug and a kiss, so I’m about as happy as can be. ”

- Mark Andrews, Director, "Brave"

-Animated Feature Film

"’Frankenweenie’ is a very personal film for me.  The idea of telling a feature length version was in the back of my mind for many years.  Stop Motion was the perfect medium for this project, and one I’ve always loved for its expressiveness and dimensionality.  I’ve worked with so many incredible artists: animators, cast members, set builders, and puppet makers, all who have helped bring this film to life one frame at a time.  I’m so honored that the Academy has recognized this film as one of its nominees."

- Tim Burton, Director “Frankenweenie”

WRECK-IT RALPH (Walt Disney Animation Studios)

"To have the ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ team’s passion and years of hard work acknowledged by the Academy is an honor like no other. We are so proud, so grateful – I can’t wait to congratulate everyone in-person."

- Rich Moore, Director “Wreck-It Ralph”

- John Kahrs, Director “Paperman”
