There were only two 100% animated feature in history to get an Oscar nomination for Best Picture – Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 1991 and Up in 2009.
Please take note that the Best Picture award is the highest honor in the Academy, the Best Film overall, and that animated films were given its own category since 2001 and it’s called the Best Animated Feature Award. So for an animated movie to get nominated for Best Picture is a greater achievement.
Beauty and the Beast was the first animated movie to get the Best Picture nod in 1991. Up, on the other hand, was fortunate to get the Best Picture nod last year because the Academy decided to nominate 10 films for the said category for the first time.
This year (or Oscars 2011 for that matter), Disney Pixar is campaigning for “Toy Story 3” to get the Best Picture nomination.
“Toy Story 3 is the Best Reviewed Film of 2010 and the Most Successful Animated Film in History”
Do you think Toy Story 3 deserves an Oscar Best Picture nomination?
