The Campaign for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar Nomination for Ashley Tisdale in HSM3: Senior Year: Disney Gets Their Head in the (FYC) Game

Ryan: "Sold out shows"
Sharpay: "Think bigger!"
Ryan: "And the Oscar goes to..."
Sharpay: "That's better!"
~Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Gabreel, "I Want It All"


As J.D. mentioned earlier today on his blog, Disney has set up their FYC website, officially announcing who they are supporting during the upcoming Oscar season. While I could go on and on about easy targets like HSM3 for Best Picture (ain't gonna happen), Kenny Ortega for Best Director (can you imagine him getting in over someone David Fincher?) and Vanessa Hudgens for Best Actress (*rofl*), what caught my attention- or, I should say, had my attention drawn to- was the fact that Disney was actually campaigning for La Tisdale in the Best Supporting Actress category. Say what...Disney's actually making a good campaign choice? This is the same company that failed to notice that La Tisdale gave the best performance in HSM2 and didn't even put her up for consideration at this year's Emmy's, right? I know I should let this go, and I still haven't completely, but now's the perfect time since they've finally realized that they should be FYC the shit out of her and her performance. Pay no attention to the fact that they sort of lumped her together with Monique Coleman (ugh, the second worst actor of the cast)- La Tisdale has more support behind her than a couple of young bloggers with glowing reviews and big dreams. And, as I always say, the more the merrier! Please Disney, let's not screw up this perfect opportunity for Oscar glory. Let's work together and we'll each be happy with the (inevitable) outcome....Academy Award-Winner Ashley Tisdale.

If Ashley Tisdale get an Oscar Nomination, I will eat my shoes!!

Ashley is fine and she's the best of the "film"... but for an OScar Nomination??!!

Instead VEra Farmiga (for two fantastic roles and in "Nothing but the Truth" she's marvelous), Misty Upham, Debra Winger, Rosemarie DeWitt, Rebecca Hall, Amanda Seyreid (I prefer her instead La Tisdale), Hiam Abbass, Samantha Morton, Viola Davis...

In HSM3, La Tisdale upholds the principles on which the Best Supporting Actress category was built upon. She's relegated to the sidelines by the Zac and Vanessa show but she makes sure she stands out in every scene. Where the script and film have no idea what to do with her, she takes every look, double take, eye roll and minor quip and turns it in acting gold. It's not serious work by any means, but there is acting going on there.

And the pleasant but bland Rebecca Hall in Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Amanda Seyfried (from Mamma Mia!, I'm assuming) deserve Oscar noms more? Seriously? La Tisdale is more alive in 2 minutes of HSM3 than they are in their entire runtimes.

I'm not trying to bring you down here, but often the FYC ads are contractually obligated. That's why you often see them for the dumbest shit imaginable.

Still, gotta love the Tis!
