Technicolor Services Dominate 2008 Oscar® Nominated Features

Thomson (Euronext Paris:18453; NYSE: TMS), through its Technicolor Business Group, today announced that its industry-leading services were instrumental to 21 of the 2008 Academy Award® nominated theatrical features, announced January 22nd.

Technicolor notably provided services to all five nominees in the category of Best Motion Picture of the Year: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, Milk, The Reader and Slumdog Millionaire. Overall, in the six major nomination categories of Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Animated Feature of the Year, Achievement in Directing, Achievement in Cinematography, Achievement in Film Editing, and Achievement in Visual Effects, Technicolor served 100% of the nominated theatrical features in some capacity. “The broad range of services provided to 2008’s Oscar-nominated features once again demonstrates Technicolor’s quality, range and innovation in serving its worldwide clients,” stated Frederic Rose, CEO of Thomson. “The breadth of Technicolor’s services includes a true balance between traditional laboratory photochemical processes along with the industry’s most innovative digital services. Our services support large studio projects and independent features alike on a global basis,” added Lanny Raimondo, SEVP of Thomson and head of Technicolor.

Technicolor’s visual effects division, MPC (The Moving Picture Company), carried out the digital colour grade and data management services for Slumdog Millionaire. Technicolor’s laboratories in Los Angeles, London, Montreal and Rome produced theatrical release prints for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon and The Dark Knight. Slumdog Millionaire and The Reader were international productions based in the U.K., photographed in India and Western Europe respectively and ultimately finished in the U.K. and U.S. by Technicolor.


Technicolor also provided complete end-to-end services to several nominated features including The Dark Knight, The Reader, Changeling, The Wrestler, and Kung Fu Panda.

This year’s Academy Award nominations exemplify Technicolor’s position in the industry,pursuant to recognitions received by other major awards organizations, including the British Academy BAFTA Awards; the Directors Guild of America and the Producers Guild of America; and especially the most important American film industry craft guilds – the American Society of Cinematographers, and the American Cinema Editors Society. Technicolor projects led both the ASC and ACE nominations for feature films.
