If there were an Oscar for Best Actor in a Disney Parks Leading or Featured Role—let’s call it the “Oswald”—this year’s award would likely go to our own dashing Dennis Marsico, a familiar face to guests as a host of the Lights! Motors! Action! Extreme Action Stunt Show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, appearances on numerous TV series and commercials, as well as a chameleonic Streetmosphere actor.
With so much of this year’s biggest Oscar buzz surrounding the silent masterpiece The Artist, we’d like you to laugh along with us and watch Major Dennis, an affectionate tribute from our pals at runDisney that showcases Disney’s Princess Half Marathon.
Our winner for the Best Actress “Oswald” goes to the lovely and talented Sheila Smith-Ward, who co-starred with Dennis in the first two videos in our unabashedly wacky comedy series, Little Timmy Goes to Magic Kingdom and Little Timmy Goes to Epcot, the latter highlighted by Dennis’ intense devotion to Duffy the Disney Bear. Both videos can be seen on the Disneyworld.com news page.
Since we just now made up “the Oswalds,” to whom would you award them? Let’s face it—they might as well have just as much gravitas as do so many other awards, perhaps more so…?
