TIM BURTON'S CORPSE BRIDE is a likely Oscar contender, says the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Positive buzz for TIM BURTON’S CORPSE BRIDE keeps building in the industry; although the film won’t be officially released until September 23rd, a columnist for the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER is already suggesting that CORPSE BRIDE could be an Oscar nominee. In an August 10 article entitled “New timetable boosts Globe influence on Oscars,” Martin A. Grove analyzes the upcoming awards season. Of CORPSE BRIDE, he writes, “[D]irected by Tim Burton and with such voice talents as Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, Emily Watson and Albert Finney [. . .], it’s a likely contender for Oscar’s best animated feature award.” What a wonderful prediction! We hope Mr. Grove’s crystal ball is accurate. Thanks to Reemi for posting the story on the news board. You can read Grove’s entire article HERE.

Meanwhile, Depp fans should watch the nightly entertainment news programs for bits of CORPSE BRIDE promotion, since the cycle is starting; Donna B. saw a feature on CORPSE BRIDE during Tuesday evening’s EXTRA. The segment showed part of the trailer and included behind-the-scenes footage with the puppeteer. EXTRA also showed interviews with Johnny and Tim done in the Bahamas during the CATCF promotion. Thanks for the update, Donna B.!
