Oscars: Toy Story 3 nominated for best picture!

...As well as Best animated feature, achievement in music written for motion pictures (original song), best motion picture of the year, achievement in sound editing and adapted screenplay.

The Pixar team certainly deserve it, Toy Story 3 ranks way in the upper echelons of my Pixar favorites list. It sits proudly in the pantheon of greatness also occupied by Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Wall-E. This movie was an achievement visually, on a story level, and just as an exercise in great sequel making.

I think it's high time the stigma surrounding animation as legitimate cinema was broken down, and Toy Story 3 should (though probably won't) be the one to do it.

The competition is stiff this year, Toy Story 3 would have to beat out; 

- “Black Swan”
- “Inception”
- “The Kids Are alright”
- “127 Hours”
- “The Social Network”
- “Winter’s Bone”
- “The King’s Speech”
- “The Fighter”

Can they do it? Sound off in the comments section!

*update* Ok so as suspected The King's Speech took home best picture, but Toy Story 3 did pick up best animated feature, which again, was not much of a surprise.
