Disney’s Oscar Winners 2008

Best animated feature film of the year
"Ratatouille" (Walt Disney/Pixar) Brad Bird

Performance by an actor in a leading role
Daniel Day-Lewis in "There Will Be Blood" (Paramount Vantage and Miramax)

Performance by an actor in a supporting role

Javier Bardem in "No Country for Old Men" (Miramax and Paramount Vantage)

Achievement in cinematography
"There Will Be Blood" (Paramount Vantage and Miramax) Robert Elswit

Achievement in directing
"No Country for Old Men" (Miramax and Paramount Vantage) Joel Coen and Ethan Coen

Best motion picture of the year
"No Country for Old Men" (Miramax and Paramount Vantage)
A Scott Rudin/Mike Zoss Production
Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, Producers

Adapted screenplay
"No Country for Old Men" (Miramax and Paramount Vantage)
Written for the screen by Joel Coen & Ethan Coen

The final tally is 7 of 24, and 7 of 17 for which they were nominated, although some categories had multiple nominations for the Mouse House. It would have been a slow night if not for Scott Rudin and the Coen brothers. And without Miramax, Disney would have only netted one award and that film originated in Pixar’s house before the merger. With fewer films from Walt Disney Pictures each year, expect this trend to continue.

Congratulations to all the winners and good luck next year to those who were nominated but not able to make that trip up to the stage for a little Oscar gold.

    I was kind of surprised that Enchanted had 3 songs nominated. I really liked the movie, and the songs were good, but I was happy for Once. That is a great soundtrack.

    I think it’s a shame that Disney didn’t get the Oscar for at least one of the three nominated songs from “Enchanted”, particularly the deserving, “How Do You Know?”. It was nice to see, however, the terrific performances by the adorable Amy Adams and Kristen Chenoweth.
