Collins Refuses To Campaign for Oscar

3 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Phil Collins is refusing Disney's request to campaign for an Oscar for his Brother Bear film score - and won't even vote for his own songs. Collins, who secured a Best Song Academy Award in 2000 for Disney's Tarzan, has been asked by the studio to fly to Los Angeles from his Swiss home to whip up enthusiasm for the new film - but the veteran rocker believes the effort would be futile. He explains, "I don't live in LA and I'm not going to travel thousands of miles to try to talk people into voting for me or twist their arm. That's not my style. The year I won I was up against Randy Newman and he campaigned really hard. But Randy had been nominated nine times before and never won, so I don't think it's the best approach - people like a bit of modest restraint." And the former Genesis star bizarrely won't even vote for himself in the ballot of Academy members next February. He explains, "I don't vote for myself, I never have. I might have won by just one vote, then it would be worthless. I don't vote, I don't tell my friends who to vote for and I don't campaign." »

Disney will shutter Paris ani unit

9 July 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

PARIS -- Walt Disney Feature Animation will close its production studio in the Parisian suburb of Montreuil-sous-Bois and lay off all of its 89 workers there, a Disney spokesperson said Tuesday in London. The spokesperson maintained that there is no set date for the studio's closure, but French news sources reported that it may happen as early as September. Disney said it had sought to sell the unit for 18 months as part of company efforts to centralize animation production but had no viable offers. The studio was involved in production work on such films as The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan and Hercules. The announcement was initially made to employees at a workers' council meeting June 20, but the news was not immediately made public. »
