The Oscars apparently didn’t garner as good ratings as it has in the past, and some said it was due to the dark, artsy nature of most of the leading contenders and no super-blockbuster films, or the lingering effects of the writers strike. Anyways, a few genre (or near-genre) films did get some technical nods. Disney/Pixar’s Ratatouille (DVD/Blu-Ray. available now) scored a second Best Animated Feature Oscar for Brad Bird, who previously scored with 2004’s The Incredibles, and The Golden Compass (DVD/Blu-Ray, April 29th) won for Visual Effects.
