Congrats to Toy Story 3 - Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Barbie, etc... Plus, News on the Next Toy Story Production!






It's amazing to me that a family movie, Toy Story 3, which is rated "G", was actually nominated for several Oscars, and in the Best Picture category, too! Wow! Unfortunately, Toy Story 3 didn't win in that category - it wasn't expected to. Instead, The King's Speech won - and while I like the actor, Colin Firth, forever Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice, 1995), I do not approve of Rated R movies, and in this case, it includes extreme profanity. I wanted to be sure you were all aware of this. I would love to see, in the future, a non-animated family film be nominated, though I 'm sure it will not be likely. If filmgoers chose these awards, instead of filmmakers, then I'm certain the nominess and results would be altogether very different!


TOY STORY 3 WON:


Best Animation



and...


Best Song

News on the Next...
Toy Story Production:

The next production will be an "Animation Short" with many of the original Toy Story characters we know and love! 
The short is set to air before the Disney/Pixar movie “Cars 2″ in theaters, when it arrives on June 24, 2011.

The image below was shared by “Toy Story 3″ director, Lee Unkrich, who posted this scene image on his Twitter account, to share with fans, an image preview from the upcoming “Toy Story” short “Hawaiian Vacation.”

The Winners Are In! The Oscars may be this weekend, and frankly, I must admit... most Hollywood "type" Movies that are recognized at those award events, are not my cup of tea.  However, it's great to know that we have other options and other film-makers willing to create good and wholesome movies for our family viewing.
