    Is there any person here who watched the live announcement back in 1992? From the video of the reveal, you can hear people were surprised Beauty & The Beast made it into the Best Picture lineup. What was the reaction back then? Was the movie even predicted to got nominated for the top category? And how about it chances during the race?

    Vintage clips from past nomination ceremonies should be online. I believe there was a gasp from the press when B&B was announced.

    That was an interesting nominations announcement. The press cheered twice: first at the Boyz ‘n the Hood nomination for Directing and then at the B&TB Picture nomination.

    The movie was expected in some way to receive the Best Picture nomination since it made history when it won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Right after the win, Disney made sure of heavily promoting the historic win, here’s a commercial that aired at that time: LINK.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Anyway, a deserved nomination, was rewatching this movie the other night and it’s one of the all timers

    FYC:

    "Succession" and "Severance" in all Drama categories;
    "Ted Lasso" and "The Great" in all Comedy categories;
    "Station Eleven" and "The White Lotus" in all Limited categories + Ethan Hawke for "Moon Knight".

    Kaley Cuoco ("The Flight Attendant"), Janelle James ("Abbott Elementary"), Mandy Moore ("This is Us"), Colin Firth ("The Staircase"), Christine Baranski ("The Good Fight"), Katja Herbers ("Evil").

    I wish Boyz n’ The Hood was nominated for BP as well. Not only are both of them great movies, having both in would have been absolutely historic.

    Such a shame It faced Silence of the Lambs, maybe it was second with all that passion.

    The amazing thing about this nomination was the almost desperate feeling it gave actors as if the fact that this one animated film got nominated for Best Picture meant that it would somehow lessen their chance to grab live action roles.

    At the award ceremony, Billy Crystal sang a lyric during his medley about how actors would “sob” because they “are out of a job”

    And when introducing a clip of the film, Sally Field flat out said she hoped it “doesn’t become a trend”.

    I can’t remember where I read it but I believe Clint Eastwood admitted to voting for it but almost out of shame.

    It was an insanely deserving nomination and I think it’s a shame that no other animated film could achieve the same feat under the 5 nominee system.

    “The art of making art is putting it together...”

    Prince of Tides was the only weak link in that lineup. Terminator 2 should’ve been nominated.

    I had never seen this video before and loved the spontaneity of the reaction from the press — you really don’t get that anymore with the new formats they’ve been trying out over the last few years and it is something I would like to see return. That also, of course, requires some audacity on the Academy’s part on what films they nominate and what films are actually seen as long shots during an awards season that doesn’t really leave too much room for surprises come Oscars nomination morning. At least we can live vicariously through the past!

    I heard Chris Beachum talk about this on Kevin Jacobsen’s podcast back in 2018. He said that Disney really pushed Beauty & the Beast hard from the standpoint of how big of an artistic achievement they had with the film. (@ 48:00)
