‘Wreck-It Ralph,’ ‘Frankenweenie,’ ‘Brave,’ ‘Paperman,’ ‘Avengers,’ Get Oscar Noms; ‘Lincoln’ Leads Charge

Earlier this morning, awards show host Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone announced the nominations for the primary categories for the upcoming 85th annual Academy Awards at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

Disney’s only nominations announced thus far — unsurprisingly — have been for Best Animated Feature Film in which Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Wreck-It Ralph, Pixar Animation Studio’s Brave were all nominated. Other films in the category are Laika’s Paranorman and Aardman Animation’s The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

Although the site is still missing a few promised elements, such as the music from the Walt Disney Animation Studios short, Paperman, most of them are there, including an introductory video which introduces and goes behind the scenes of the promoted films: Frankenweenie, Brave, Wreck-It Ralph and Paperman.

‘Frankenweenie’ Clip ‘Goldfish Reanimated’

FRANKENWEENIE

Initially purported to be a clip exclusive to the Frankenweenie: An Electrifying Book iBook, Walt Disney Studios has recently released this extended clip from Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie through Apple’s trailer website (this particular embed comes to us via Walt Disney Studios Australia).

Titled ‘Goldfish Reanimated,’ the clip takes places shortly after Edgar ‘E’ Gore confronts Victor in his home about how he knows Sparky has been brought back to life. Blackmailed, Victor shares his secret reanimation process with Edgar on a specially-selected goldfish, but neither understand the shocking result.

Frankenweenie debuts in theaters nationwide on October 5, 2012
