The nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards was just announced, and “Frankenweenie” got its one as “Animated Feature Film”!
Congratulations to Tim Burton for it, and also the whole cast and crew.
Frankenweenie has been pointed as the best Tim Burton work in the latest ten years and this is being assured now with the awards season. The film just got a nomination to 2013 Golden Globes Awards as Best Animation Feature Film!
The movie has won already at the New Yok Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics and Boston Society Critics, and a nomination at the Sattelite Awards and Annie Awards!
Congratulations to cast and crew!
Though it underperformed at the box office, most critics agree that Tim Burton‘s Frankenweenie was the director’s best film in years. Combining his love of the macabre with childlike wonder, heart and humor, it’ll surely be a home video discovery for fresh audiences for years to come. That process will start on January 15 when the DVD and Blu-ray hit shelves and one of the highlights of the disc is a brand new short film called Captain Sparky vs the Flying Saucers.
The short was written by Frankenweenie co-producer Derek Frey and will run two minutes and 20 seconds. That’s all the information that’s available at the moment but it sounds promising. (Hopefully this will be one of the short films the character Victor makes using his dog, Sparky.)
We Are Movie Geek published today an interview done with Winona and Martin Landau during the “Frankenweenie” Press Conference. Check it some highlights:
What was the experience working with Tim Burton again?
WINONA RYDER: Oh, it’s always amazing. I mean, I’m trying to think of like new adjectives to use, because I, um… it, it truly is just such a special experience all every time and, and even also just being around him when just he’s one of my favorite people I think in the world that – just to be around.
