    Disney rec'd six nominations if you include the Pixar animated short "One Man Band."

    Re: Disney Oscar Analysis: The breakdown

    Yes, I will go back and change the original total, but still... One nomination doesn't change the differance in number between being in the mid twenties to only six...

    That is a drastic reduction... I suggest that it is also reflected in the 500 million dollar downturn in the box office numbers in this last year...

    Is there any wonder why even with the Pixar deal going through, Disney stock still is at $25 per share? The other side of the numbers (that reflect production quality) do matter.

    Re: Disney Oscar Analysis: The breakdown

    I completely agree that there is an absence of quality in alot of what gets released by Walt Disney Pictures and Touchstone Pictures (case in point would be current release "Annapolis", or last year's dreadful "The Pacifier"). But keep in mind that even when there is quality, most Disney films are aimed at family audiences, and family films typically don't fare well at the Oscars. Miramax was always the source of WDC's Oscar accolades, and in 2005 all Miramax had left on its shelf was the crap it needed to clean out before the Weinstein brothers left. Personally, I don't really want Disney to be in the business of edgy, prestige films, but I do want them to produce quality mainstream films (I'm thinking of flicks like "The Rookie").

    Here is the thing...

    Not all that Miramax had left on the shelf was what I considered crap... Anything that was decent was unloaded and sold to other distribution companies... Case in point - Gilliam's Brother's Grimm... (Which I actually liked...)

    Generally speaking the Oscars will reward quality independant of edginess or prestige in film...

    Lion King (Nomination), Gladiator, Forest Gump, Lord of the Rings... These where all mainstream AND quality films...

    Lets look at Narnia for a moment...

    In truth, Narnia wasn't that strong of a movie to warrent an Oscar... Yeah, it was big at the box office... Though the film was good, they lost much of the narrative inside the exposition of dialogue... And it simply understated the character of Edmund... You can throw money at a film, yes that is true... But one has to throw money at the right people who understand the importance of character developement in the plot...
