‘La Luna’ Nominated at the 84th Academy Awards!

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!

    Not a single nomination for Cars 2. Not even a technical one. Not that that’s surprising because Cars 2 has been pretty invisible during the award season, but this has got to hurt. Even before the Animated Feature category was introduced, every Pixar movie managed to get at least 1 nomination.
    Unfortunately, Lasseter will probably never acknowledge that Cars 2 was Pixar’s first dud and I’m pretty sure that he’ll have a lame excuse for why Cars 2 wasn’t nominated (probably something like ’2011 was a great year for animation’, which it wasn’t).
    I, for one, am very happy that Cars 2 was completely ignored by the Academy and I hope that the people at Pixar (particularly Lasseter, though I doubt it) may now learn their lesson.

    Please spare me the lesson and do something as awesome as the people at pixar have been doing since they started bringing out films. Cars 2 was not up there with the best and Cars was absolutely better but why does every Pixar film need to be the best ever? I enjoyed it and that is fine.

    And that’s exactly Pixar’s new business model. Making money is more important than making good movies.

    We’ll see. If Brave fails then you can say that dude above me but I’m pretty sure Cars is Lasseter’s bigger version of Knick Knack.

    Basicly a silly, silly cartoon. So I wouldn’t mind betting that 2012 onwards the quality will go up.

    If not, dude above me you roll your eyes at the and go I told you so at the screen when it fails.
