And The Oscar Goes To...

Nominations for the 94th Oscars® were announced this morning, with films from across The Walt Disney Company combining to earn 23 Academy Award® nominations.

• West Side Story has received seven nominations: Best Picture, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Directing, Best Costume Design, Best Sound, Best Cinematography and Best Production Design.

• With Nightmare Alley, Searchlight Pictures has now received 20 Best Picture nominations and a grand total of 172 Academy Award nominations. In addition to Best Picture, the film received nominations for Best Costume Design, Best Cinematography and Best Production Design.

• Disney’s Onyx Collective secured its first Oscar nomination with Summer of Soul Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised), in partnership with Searchlight Pictures and Hulu.

• Jessica Chastain was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in Searchlight Pictures’ The Eyes of Tammy Faye. The film also garnered a nomination for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.

• Pixar Animation Studios’ Luca earned a Best Animated Feature nomination, as did Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Raya and the Last Dragon. The latter studio’s film Encanto received three nominations, for Best Animated Feature, Best Original Score, and Best Original Song.

In hindsight, Disney probably wishes it had entered We Don’t Talk About Bruno from Encanto for Best Original Song.…

Who notes traditionally, it is Fox Searchlight and Pixar that do well at the Academy Awards, so it’s nice to see Raya and Encanto getting some much-deserved recognition.
