As ‘Awards Season’ approaches, studios are once again beginning to assemble their ‘For Your Consideration’ websites and so it is with Walt Disney Studios who recently made its site public once again, revamped for the 2014-15 movie season. This time around, Walt Disney Studios appears to be pushing just Big Hero 6 and Into the Woods as well as shorts Feast and Lava (which presumably Disney would love to attach an Oscar to prior to the theatrical release of Pixar’s Inside Out).
