Why Toy Story 3 must win Oscar for Best Motion Picture of the year.   Leave a comment

Toy Story 3 is GREAT; Toy Story 3 is simply awesome! It’s more than just kid’s stuff, a movie with lot of heart, a movie that transcends beyond imagination, a movie that shows depth of understanding and respect for human nature.

To appreciate and honor animated movies, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences included the Category: Best Animated feature in the year 2001 and since then all the movies of Pixar have been nominated under the same. Beauty and the beast, UP, Toy Story 3 are the only animated movies ever to be nominated for the best picture.

Disney has launched a campaign called ‘for your consideration’ to promote Toy Story 3 as a serious contender for the best picture. It’s about mapping  and relating ‘Toy Story 3’ scenarios/snapshots with previous Best Picture winners like ‘Godfather’, ‘Silence of the Lambs’, ‘Titanic’, ‘Forrest Gump’ and many others.

Rich Ross: Walt Disney Studios Chairman states:

“Everyone at Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios is immensely proud of TOY STORY 3. Featuring dazzling imagery and a heart-rending story by Michael Arndt, it is undeniably an original in every way. We wanted our campaign, therefore, to honor this very special film’s inventiveness, and its uniqueness with like-minded, self-effacing good humor, and to the point, with something original of our own. Calling out these fun-loving comparisons to Best Picture winners from Oscar’s past matched with specific images from the film, we feel, reminds us of the many unforgettable moments from TOY STORY 3, and what we love about it in the first place. We believe in TOY STORY 3’s capacity to disarm and transport even the most world-weary of us, and we hope these images go even a small way to bring a smile to your face, and remind us what the best movies are capable of doing, getting inside of us and never letting go.”

Toy Story 3 is one of the best reviewed film of the year and i consider Toy Story series to be best Trilogies of all because of its authenticity and simplicity. Toy Story 1 started an animation revolution, directed by John Lasseter it was first full length CGI feature film.  Toy Story 2 lived upto its expectations and now Toy story 3 has pushed the limits and is one of the most creative movies ever made.

Out of the 10 movies nominated for best picture, The social network is the only one which has the potential to win. I hope this time the academy acknowledges  the devotion and contribution of Pixar in a much bigger way.
