As you probably know by now, Disney and Pixar have been pushing for not only Best Animated Feature, but the Academy Award for Best Picture. We've written in the past about the ambitious Oscar campaign [1] launched by the mouse house -- Industry trade newspaper advertisements which feature characters and scenes from the film compared to previous Best Picture winners that had something going against them such as being a different genre, a sequel or a plain old underdog. Films such as The Godfather Part II, West Side Story, On The Waterfront, Shakespeare In Love, The Silence Of The Lambs, Titanic, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King and Forrest Gump. We've featured a couple of these ads on the site in the past months, and today we learned that Disney has released the whole batch of "for your consideration" campaign ads on their online awards site.
