Mickey Mouse Oscar Figures (literally)…

By Todd SokolovE

Tonight’s nomination for GET A HORSE! is Mickey’s first Oscar Short nom since MICKEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL in 1983. 

If it wins, it’s the first short with Mickey to win since LEND A PAW in 1941…

If it loses, it’s fifth in a row, joining  SQUATTER’S RIGHTS (1946), “MICKEY AND THE SEAL (1948), “MICKEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL (1983) and RUNAWAY BRAIN(1995). 

GET A HORSE! is the third Disney short to be filmed and released in 3-D.  The first was MELODY and the second was WORKING FOR PEANUTS both in 1953…

Walt Disney Animation Studios won Best Animated Short last year for PAPERMAN.   It was the first Disney animated short film to win the category  in 43 years (since IT’S TOUGH TO BE A BIRD in 1969)…

Mickey Mouse was the first non-human recipient of an Oscar.  In 1932, Walt was honored for his creation, although Mickey’s short MICKEY’S ORPHANS lost to Silly Symphony FLOWERS AND TREES.
