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:

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.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments: 1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?) I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
