The Stakes Go ‘Up’ for Disney for Taking Home the Oscar in 2010

The nominations for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards have been announced this morning and, once again, it’s up to the Disney/Pixar champion UP to bring home the gold (statuettes) for The Walt Disney Company.

For top prizes, UP is competing for both Best Animated Film as well as Best Motion Picture of the Year, in the newly expanded category. Other nominated categories include: Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Score) for which Michael Giacchino has already received numerous awards and accolades for;  Achievement in Sound Editing; and another top category for Original Screenplay.

Another strong contender from Walt Disney Animation Studios is The Princess and the Frog which takes UP head on in the Best Animated Film category as well as being nominated twice in the Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Song) category with Randy Newman’s Almost There and Down in New Orleans.
