Disney To Push Toy Story 3 For Best Picture

disney to push toy story 3 for best picture

Disney is REALLY serious about their desire to take home the Best Picture Oscar this year.

According to The New York Times, Disney is going to push Toy Story 3 for the coveted Best Picture award.

Here's what the NY Times had to say about it:

“…The Walt Disney Company has decided to take a deep breath and push Pixar’s Toy Story 3 with all of its might. An animated film has never won the top prize — only two, Beauty and the Beast and Up, have ever been nominated — and Disney, in a decision that went all the way to Robert A. Iger, the media giant’s chief executive, has decided that Toy Story 3 should finally be the one."

We fully support your efforts, Disney! Would be very cool to see an animated film bring home the top prize…especially one as deserving as Toy Story 3.

Do U think Toy Story 3 deserves Best Picture?

Sofia Coppola Wins Top Prize At Venice!

Filed under: Film FlickersAwardz

Recently, we were congratulating Sofia Coppola for having her second baby, Cosima, and now it looks like we've got even more to congratulate her on!

Sofia Coppola was awarded the Golden Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday for her film Somewhere.

The film is about a Hollywood actor, Johnny Marco, whose life gets consumed with alcohol, drugs, and sex. When Marco’s 11-year-old daughter comes to stay with him, he must reassess his wild lifestyle.

Actors Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning star as Marco and his daughter. Should be inneresting to see if this film could be Dorff’s The Wrestler.

Depending how it goes, maybe we’ll take this as an opportunity to finally forgive Dorff for feardotcom. Yuck!

Are U excited to see Sofia Coppola’s new film?
