Today’s a big day in the movie industry as nominations for the 90th Oscars were announced a bit earlier. Disney was well represented in the nominations, picking up the following ten nominations from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences:
- Animated Feature Film – Coco
- Music (Original Song) – Remember Me (Coco)
- Music (Original Score) – Star Wars: The Last Jedi
- Sound Editing – Star Wars: The Last Jedi
- Sound Mixing – Star Wars: The Last Jedi
- Visual Effects – Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
- Costume Design – Beauty and the Beast
- Production Design – Beauty and the Beast
- Short Film (Animated) – Lou
Of course, the big one here is Coco’s best animated feature film nomination. You’ll recall that Coco won the Golden Globe for best animated feature a few weeks ago, so it is not a stretch to say it will be a favorite to win the Oscar.
The 90th Oscars will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and aired live Sunday, March 4th (8pm ET) on ABC.
