Animax Entertainment will be at the Oscars. Well, sort of. Right now at Hollywood and Highland is a huge billboard promoting the site we worked on for Disney and the Ad Council for Keep Oceans Clean. The Little Mermaid isn't up for an Oscar this year, but she'll be waving to all the celebrities as they walk the red carpet into the Kodak Theater.
