How to Train Your Dragon already campaigning for an Oscar
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
DreamWorks Animation has reportedly already begun the long process of campaigning their film HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON for the 2011 Academy Awards, most definitely for Best Animated Film as well as Best Picture. Now normally, this wouldn’t really be considered a serious piece of news, but I find it intriguing that a studio would begin this process in early September? I wonder if this premature push has anything to do with their biggest competition of the year, also known as Pixar’s TOY STORY 3? Looks like the Best Animated Film Category will be one to watch next year.
I have not seen HOW TO TRAIN YOU DRAGON or TOY STORY 3 yet, but I don’t see how Pixar could lose. What do you think? Is it likely that a DreamWorks film would beat a Pixar film?
