Disney performances at the Oscars

How is it that Disney’s performances at the Oscars always seemed to get it so right? While Disneyland seemed to move into the complete opposite direction of light fluffy out-of-context disneyfication, these performances were inspiring, amazing, creative, expertly choreographed and realised, and a musical treat. (Well besides the showcase for The Little Mermaid, which is frankly shit and The Lion King which is kinda meh.) One of the YouTube comments for the Belle/Be Our Guest clip said that was the moment Hollywood realised these animated films were so much more than that, and were great works of art that could rival live action films – and work as stage musicals in their own right. The creatives probably had a lot more freedom with these performances. If Disney was this, and nothing more, there would be nothing for me to write about in this blog. For you can’t critique perfection.


Sit back, relax, and press play to uncover some fantastic works of art unfold before your very eyes. These are the performances of the Best Original Song nominations of Disney songs at the Oscars. (From TLM to TLK, after which they stopped doing them).

    Wow, Beauty and the Beast sung by Angela Lansbury, Celine Dion and the other person whose name escapes me…way to get the waterworks going! I’ve never seen the Oscars performance of this. Thanks for sharing.
