Congratulations to Walt Disney Studios for receiving 12 Oscar nominations this morning including Best Picture for Toy Story 3! It was a big year for Disney with two animated films that became instant classics (and whose merchandising results fills my house) with Toy Story 3 and Tangled.
Here are Disney’s nominations. I haven’t yet seen The Tempest or Day & Night, but I will be looking them up soon 🙂 The rest I can easily concur with the nominating committee that these films are well deserving.
