In the 84-year history of Oscar®, no Academy Award®-winning best picture has ever been made without motion picture film.
"We congratulate all of the 2013 nominees for their remarkable achievements,"
Movies made on Kodak film received a total of 56 nominations. In the four acting categories, an overwhelming majority (16 of 20) of the nominated performances were captured on motion picture film. Additionally, three of the five nominees for best cinematography relied on Kodak film to create their compelling imagery, as did three of the five directors acknowledged in their category.
Evenski also notes that Kodak is still making billions of feet of film. "Many of those reels will be loaded into cameras that are capturing movies that will contend for Academy Awards in 2014."
