Toy Story 3 going to push hard for a Best Picture Oscar

11.18.2010

I guess Pixar is getting bored with being a lock for the Best Animated Feature Oscar every year, and now with one of their best films in a while, they're going to be gunning for the top award.

They're planning a major push for TOY STORY 3 as a serious contender for Best Picture. The campaign is going to include some advertisements featuring Toy Story characters acting out various scenes from other best picture winners including ON THE WATERFRONT, WEST SIDE STORY, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, TITANIC, RETURN OF THE KING and of course, FORREST GUMP as they share an overlapping star.

TOY STORY 3 is currently hovering around my favorite film of the year right now alongside THE SOCIAL NETWORK, and this may seem like a reasonable thought at the present time. But keep in mind that we have yet to see titles like BLACK SWAN, 127 HOURS, TRUE GRIT and others hit theaters yet, as we're about to launch into full-on Oscar season. However, those could grab some actor/director awards and leave the big Best Picture slot open.

If we're being honest, the Oscars are pretty political and ratings dependent so it might be "time" for an animated film to win big if for no other reason than to get people talking about it. 

Do you think TOY STORY 3 has a chance? Do you think it deserves it?

Americans believe me, Pixar is not the super duper animation making company you think it is. I didn't know you were all such suckers for melodrama, because that's what Pixar movies offer next to stale, silly jokes. Wall-E was great but all their other movies were no more than just okay.

Plus this Oscar thing is not gonna happen either, because if they do allow it every other prick and a half who makes an animation is gonna want the same.

I was REALLY hoping that UP would break this barrier last year, but if TS3 can do it, that's great.

Toy Story 3 is no doubt one of the greatest animated films ever made, but I just can't get behind letting animated movies get into the best picture scene. I even consider Avatar animated. Anytime that you "paint" emotion on a screen or live actor, then that isn't really acting any longer and if there isn't real acting then it shouldn't be considered for best picture, director, actor, etc, only for best animated.

Toy Story 3 was my favorite film of the year, and has moved me more than Up and Wall-e did. I wouldn't be disappointed if Inception or Social Network won, but I personally felt Toy Story 3 was a better movie.

This shouldn't be hard, wasn't Up nominated this year? This movie year was so lame that Inception, The Social Network and Toy Story 3 are the only films that came out so far that I think even deserve to be nominated.

Goodluck to Toy Story. It was great but Black Swan by all means should be taking home the oscar. Social Network is pretty forgettable in the shadow of black Swan. However, this opinion may change though after True Grit and Kings Speech are released...

animated movies don't deserve it...

They have their own award. It would be a shame and disincentive for Christian Colson, Danny Boyle, Christopher Nolan, Scott Rudin, etc. to take creative and narrative risks if we were to crown an animated sequel best-in-show (let alone the THIRD installment in a MULTI-BILLION dollar DISNEY franchise).

if the movie is better than live action then it deserves it. what makes you think a live action movie deserves more credit than an animated one if the animated one is actually better?!?!?!

"what makes you think a live action movie deserves more credit than an animated one if the animated one is actually better?!?!?!" because more work goes into them.

More work goes into a live action movie? Are you freakin' stoned? Animated films typically take twice as long to produce than live action, with exceptions, like Avatar, but even then the usual Pixar fare takes longer to produce. Granted there can be some animated crap these days, but, with a company like Pixar, you're really not giving credit to people that have worked hard to churn out eleven solid, financially and creative successful animated films. Who else can claim that?

AGREED. They have their own category for a reason. There is a reason we don't have best animated director and best animated actor. It's all completely different. I loved Toy Story 3 and I'm sure it took a LOT of work. But its just not the same as a live action film.

if it took you eight years to graduate college, and it only took me four, does that mean you worked harder than me? What about if I graduated from Harvard and you graduated from some community college? Scouting locations, building sets, running production camps,

Pixar animators don't have to deal with any of this... don't get me wrong, they're talented individuals... I just don't think their output needs to be equated with works truly deserving of film's highest honor...

I'm not disputing the fact that a lot of hard work goes into live action film making at all, I'm just saying you're severely downplaying the fact that a lot of hard work is in animation, from storyboard artists, model sculptors, texture designers, lighting animators, especially when they have a near perfect track record. You're entitled to your opinion, but give'em more credit than a bunch of dudes sitting around, clicking a mouse in front of a computer.

Animated films have ONE award they can really get (minus smaller stuff such as best sound design), as best actor and director are almost always made up of live action films, so aren;t we being biased toward they animated movies? At the very least, using your logic, shouldn't the animated films get their own catergories? (ie- best voice actor/ actress, etc.)

Dismissing it because it's animated is a foll's game, and very sad and pathetic.

While I am "hip to this news" (it's a pretty cool idea), won't this ruin it's chances of being taken more seriously as a contender?

Best animated feature is a lock but there is no way it'll win best picture. Simply too much competition. The Social Network, King's Speech, Inception, Black Swan, True Grit, The Kids are all Right, 127 hours, etc. There's just no way this year.

With ten best picture nominees, Pixar deserves to get in there after cranking out consecutive, quality films. Though, unfortunately, I'm thinking this will be Fincher's year to reap the awards with Social Network.

The best picture oscar will go to The King's Speech or The Social Network.

I don't necessarily agree with that choice, but it's already close to being a fact. They have the right buzz and that is all you need.

Oscar? No way

TS3 was the weakest of the franchise and continues Pixar's slide into mediocrity. NO way is this going to win Best Picture. As they say, it's an honor just to be nominated. Pixar/Disney should be happy if they even get nominated for Best Pic.

As much as I loved Toy Story 3, it's the wrong animated film to win. I hate the idea of an actor or director winning for their body of work. There's lifetime achievement awards for that. Wall•E was the best chance they had and it was sadly overlooked. Toy Story 3 is definitely a great film but it has it's own category to win. It's Fincher's year. Pixar will have it's year eventually too.

if toy story 3 wins best picture, that would be the most epic achievement ever. Pixar and Disney have never dissappointed. they need this. INCEPTION is a mastepiece as well as THE SOCIAL NETWORK. it'll be close...

I liked Cars. It wasn't some cinematic masterpiece, but neither are 99% of other movies every year. Apparently I'm not the only one as Pixar is making Cars 2. There must be SOME degree of approval for that film.

I'd like to see Pixar win Best Picture

not because TS3 was a great movie (it was) but because Pixar has consistently produced some of the most beloved movies of *any* year. Giving TS3 Best Picture would also in a way honour Ratatouille, WALL-E and Up. It's like Martin Scorsese winning for The Departed.

Firstly, I am looking forward to those campaign spots featuring the characters because they sound genius to me!

As for the debate, I most certainly agree that it deserves a nomination but will it win? It's impossible to say this early on without a full list of nominees. Considering the academy has the option of picking up to 10 movies like last year, it's going to be a complete mixed bag. It could be frankly awesome for the film to win both animated and picture, but that is a dream

Sort of meandering off the topic (but not completely), I think this'll be an interesting voting process for The Golden Schmoes this year—especially with Inception and Toy Story 3 pulling such weight from equal sides, it seems.

The year started off without a real bang, but for awards, this year, itself, will be one to beat.

Let’s be real, it won’t actually win Best Picture, no matter how hard they push. Having said that, I love the idea behind the campaign – having Toy Story characters acting out famous scenes from various Best Picture winners could be great. I just hope they release the images online so I can have Woody and Buzz as Aragorn and Gandalf from THE RETURN OF THE KING as my desktop background.

Toy Story 3 should win Best Picture because it truly was amazing and was without a doubt the best movie to come out this year.

I would love to see The Kids Are All Right and Inception make a push for Best Picture and possibly taking home the title.

Awarding Toy Story

The Academy may decide to award Toy Story 3 as a way to recognize Pixar's achievement with the Toy Story franchise. Remember, part of the reason the Best Animated Feature category was created was to reward films like the original Toy Story. The Academy may decide to declare Toy Story 3 best picture because it is the final installment in a film series that was the beginning of a new era of film (not only animation).

I really do hope Toy Story 3 gets the win. I thought UP should have gotten it last year but that didn't work out. What I really love about Toy Story 3 is that you can watch it without seeing the previous 2 and it is still a masterpiece. I haven't seen any of the other contenders yet but as a Pixar loyalist, I would dream for the day they took home Best Picture, and this one deserves it.

And I'm left wondering yet again how Saving Private Ryan actually lost Best Movie to that one..

Shakespeare beat Ryan because other than the D-Day sequence, SPR was nothing new or special. Hell it wasn't even the best war movie that year. That honor belongs to The Thin Red Line. Plus Shakespeare was a terrific crowd pleaser which still delights today.

That was a sort of peculiar year. Shakespeare in Love was a great movie, but so was Saving Private Ryan. They were completely different movies, though, and it all came down to what the voters were in the mood for.

However, that year, I think the film that was completely robbed for Best Picture was Life is Beautiful. How it didn't win... is sort of insane.

I don't think they have a realistic chance at winning, but they are obviously free to try.

Then again, I think that only half of their recent wins were really deserved. I prefered Persepolis over Ratatouille and Mary and Max over Up (Those movies were "deeper" than all Pixars combined).

Meh...

I'm all for an animated film getting a Best Picture nomination/win, especially a Pixar film. However, I just didn't enjoy Toy Story 3 as much as other Pixar films. Toy Story 3 just didn't have the same amount of depth for me. Maybe it's because it's the third installment of the series and it's been done. "Wall-E" and "Up" were just on a much deeper level, and I absolutely love those films. If anything they should have gotten the nod.


I think it's kind of like Scorcese getting the win for

I think it's kind of like Scorcese getting the win for "Departed" and not "Aviator" or "Gangs..." or "Raging Bull"...I'm glad they finally got the big win, but why not a few years earlier?

I completely see your point, and I completely agree, but I've got to side with Toy Story 3 on this one. I thought it measured up with the rest superbly.

Wait a sec

If toy story 3 wins Best Picture would it also be able to win Best Animated picture?

I really doubt Toy Story 3 is going to need to push all that hard to get a Best Picture nomination, I'd say it's been in the bag since day one. If they were still only nominating 5 movies, then they'd have to fight, but it's pretty much a sure thing it will be nominated...I don't think there are any other shitty Sandra Bullock movies to fill in the slots this year. Either way it's going to be fun to see those reenactment clips!

They're not fighting for the nomination, they're fighting for the win
