Disney has introduced which Oscars they’re campaigning for on their awards site, confirming award campaigns for 5 separate films.
Avengers: Endgame and The Lion King lead the cost, with Avengers being placing ahead for 14 awards, and The Lion King for 13. Disney is asking that Aladdin be thought of for a single award (Best Original Song for “Speechless”), whereas Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2 are each searching for 12 nominations, together with Best Picture, Best Animated Feature, and Best Director. Curiously, The Lion King is searching for a Best Picture nomination however not a Best Animated Feature one, regardless of being the highest grossing animated feature of all time.
Perhaps most attention-grabbing is what number of actors Disney is placing ahead for supporting roles. Disney is campaigning for Avengers: Endgame actors Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin, Paul Rudd, and Don Cheadle for Best Supporting Actor. It’s searching for Best Supporting Actress nominations for Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, and Brie Larson. Disney can be asking to be thought of for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and several other different awards.
The Lion King is asking for Donald Glover to be thought of for Best Actor for his portrayal of Simba. The Best Supporting Actor consideration listing consists of Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Eric Andre, Keegan-Michael Key, and JD McCrary. Disney seeks Best Supporting Actress nominations for Alfre Woodard, Florence Kasumba, Shahadi Wright Joseph, and Beyonce Knowles-Carter.
‘For Your Consideration’ lists for Captain Marvel, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker are usually not included as of but. 2017’s Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi was nominated for four Oscars, although, so it is doubtless that Disney is planning a marketing campaign following The Rise of Skywalker’s launch.
Oscar nominees are usually introduced in January, so we’ll have to attend to see how many–if any–of these performances make the minimize. If historical past repeats, Disney’s finest odds are within the Animated Feature class and within the technical and styling classes, corresponding to Visual Effects and Best Costume Design, and the sound classes.
