Oscar Nominated Movie Websites


I thought it would interesting to take a look at the 2008 Oscar nominated movies and see what their websites looked like.

There ended up being 22 movies and associated websites, that were nominated for the popular awards (some movies are nominated more than once).

Almost all the movies used flash of some kind, with over half of the sites being all flash.

Less than half had the trailer or other video preview embedded in the sites homepage, and slightly less than that made use of audio in the site (excluding audio in the video).

I’m more than a little surprised how many studios won’t shell out the $10 to registered a domain for their movie. I realize they are probably trying to build traffic to the studios website. Even a domain that redirects to the studio site would make remembering the movies URL a little easier.

This sites in no particular order…
