|November 18, 1932 (shown at 5th Academy Awards banquet)|
It features Mickey Mouse leading a parade of caricatured nominees for Best Actor and Best Actress. He is assisted by Minnie Mouse, Clarabelle Cow, and various anthropomorphic animals and insects as musicians and pages. The nominees in order of appearance were:
- Wallace Beery (with Jackie Cooper) for The Champ.
- Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt for The Guardsman,
- Helen Hayes for The Sin of Madelon Claudet,
- Fredric March for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and
- Marie Dressler for Emma.
- Pluto rounds up the procession that reads "THE END".
- Parade of the Award Nominees is the first movie in which Mickey appeared in color, and he wore green, instead of his iconic red, shorts.
- Pluto is grey rather than yellow.
- Joe Grant was hired to create the caricatures of the award nominees. It was his first work for Disney and he continued working in their story department for 70 years.
- The winners who appear in the parade were Hayes, and Beery and March who were joint winners.
- It was only shown at the Awards banquet and never intended for the general public; it was eventually released on both LaserDisc and DVD as part of Mickey Mouse cartoon compilation sets.
