Better than the Razzies, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced their nominations for the 86th Annual Academy Awards, coming up on Sunday, March 2nd. As Disney is now focussing more on mega-blockbusters and less artsy pics, they are getting fewer nominations than companies that bring in less money, but release more films. This also keeps them out of the biggest categories of acting, directing, writing, and the big one of best picture, and even the lesser ones of cinematography, editing, and design. In addition to Disney’s “own” awards, Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound employees have picked up some nominations for their work. This is harder to list, and ILM & Skywalker don’t get named by the Academy themselves. They may become footnotes on the list – it will be hard to track them as time goes on (but congratulations is in order, nonetheless).
So, without further ado, here are the categories in which Disney is nominated:

Today, another blip on the radar of a documentary based on a quasi-Disney project. Roger Corman, the mega-busy producer of perhaps questionable B-quality films (or worse) made a version of Marvel’s The Fantastic Four back in 1994. There were lots of significant factors surrounding it’s production, and it was never released, nor – does it seem – was it ever intended to. Today we bring news of a documentary made about the project, a film called Doomed! (Did I mention that the villain was the infamous Dr. Doom?). Anyways, for more information, you can check out the Doomed FaceBook page!
