Disney/Pixar gears up for the 84th Academy Awards with the newly unveiled Cars 2 "For Your Consideration" campaign.
Aiming for the Best Animated Feature Oscar, the initial advertisements feature ‘candid’ moments from the film. Cars 2 is notable for being the studio’s first feature with unpredictable chances at the nomination following four consecutive Pixar wins in the ‘Animated’ category.
It will be interesting to see whether Lightning and Mater can land a spot at the ceremony after the barrage of mixed reviews from earlier this year. The Best Original Song and Best Original Score categories seems like good bets on Pixar’s part. Oscar voters will probably be more friendly toward the Michael Giacchino-composed soundtrack than anything else.
The 84th Academy Awards, hosted by Billy Crystal (Mike Wazowski!), will be televised live on February 26, 2012. Nominations will be announced January 24, 2012.
