Woody and Buzz Pass $1 Billion!
Fifteen years ago, nobody could have guessed that this would happen for a franchise of such humble beginnings. Toy Story 3 has just passed the $1 billion mark, making it the first animated film to do so, and making Disney the first studio to have two films make $1 billion in one year. Pixar's eleventh feature is a lock for a Best Picture nomination, and people believe that it may have an actual chance at taking the top prize. Personally, I'm going to bet that it walks away with Best Animated Feature, as well it should, and perhaps a few technicals, but nothing more, especially not Best Picture. Still, Pixar has proven to be able to pull its own weight and to get the rewards of their hard work.
