Disney Fails to Submit Atlantis for Best Animated Feature Consideration!

(November 23, 2001 - by In a shocking move, Disney purposely did not submit Atlantis: The Lost Empire for consideration in the first ever Best Animated Feature Academy Award category.

The New York Times has revealed that Disney's strategy in not submitting Atlantis: The Lost Empire for Best Animated Feature Oscar consideration is to put its entire effort behind Monsters, Inc. It is expected that when final nominations are announced, all the movies making the final three nominations will now be 100% CGI.

Disney could have been put in a tough spot if the final three nominations had been Shrek, Monsters, Inc., and Atlantis as Disney represents both Monsters, Inc. and Atlantis. By leaving Atlantis out of the equation, Disney hopes to increase the chances of Monsters, Inc. winning the award.
