'La Luna' Nominated at the 84th Academy Awards!

Academy Awards La Luna News

Nominations for the 84th Academy Awards were announced today with an honorable mention reserved for one of Pixar’s films.

Disappointingly but unsurprisingly, Cars 2 didn’t garner any nods making it the first Pixar film not to land a spot in the Best Animated Feature category since its inception. On a positive note, Enrico Casarosa’s short, La Luna, is now in the running for Best Animated Short!

Short Film (Animated)
• Dimanche/Sunday – Patrick Doyon
• The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore – William Joyce, Brandon Oldenburg
• La Luna – Enrico Casarosa
• A Morning Stroll – Grant Orchard and Sue Goffe
• Wild Life – Amanda Forbis, Wendy Tilby

La Luna opens in theatres with Brave on June 22, 2012!

The 84th Academy Awards will be televised LIVE on Sunday, February 26 beginning at 7e/4p in the US.

Congratulations, Enrico Casarosa and the La Luna crew!
