Big Hero 6, Guardians, X-Men, and Cap all Get Oscar Nods
The highest profile nomination was Big Hero 6, the animated film based on the Marvel comic, but done by Disney. That movie was nominated for best “Animated Feature Film.” It will go against The Boxtrolls, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Song of the Sea, and The Tales of the Princess Kaguya. Shockingly, The Lego Movie which was one of the highest grossing films of the year and loved was snubbed in the category, it did pick up one nod in “Music – Original Song.” Especially since Song of the Sea is yet to be released.
Guardians of the Galaxy received two nominations. The first of which was for “Makeup and Hairstyling.” For that category the film is up against Foxcatcher and The Grand Budapest Hotel.
“Visual Effects” is where most of the “comic” films got nominated. Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: Winter Solider, and X-Men: Days of Future Past all got nominations in this category. Also nominated was Interstellar and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
