An Oscar for Tim Burton? - Movies News at IGN
Yes to Toy Story 3 and no to Alice in Wonderland.
Gross gross gross gross gross gross.
Yes to Burton, no to Toy Story.
TO THE SMELTERS PIT WITH THIS MAN!
toy story 3 deserves the best picture award, no other movie can justify getting it
I have never seen Toy Story 3, but I have seen Wonderland, and it does not deserve an oscar.
TS3 should get it, it sounds alot better.
Burton for president!
This is basically my thoughts also. Toy Story was a much better movie on all levels.
Hell no, maybe toy story but Alice sucked, I don't know anybody that is a fan of that movie.
No to both.
Burton and Pixar have both been repeating themselves for years.
..and in before the usual comments about the Oscars existing for no reason other than to prop up the big names, however uninspired their outcome has become.
What is this I don't even
Usually with Tim Burton's recent stuff I see it and say "the movie sucked, but at least the imagination was cool." But Alice in Wonderland was just terrible. It's like Burton got drunk then threw up on a canvas, thought he saw the Mad Hatter in the chunks and decided to write and shoot a movie around it.
I couldn't even say that about Sweeney Todd - ejected the DVD about half an hour in.
God, I forgot about Sweeney Todd. I saw that shit in the theater and I still hurt because of it.
I think one of Burton's biggest problems is that every one of his movies have that exact same Burton aesthetic, regardless of what the movie is about.
I haven't seen both films, so it doesn't matter to me which wins the Oscar.
But I would like to know when is Burton going to start on the new Dark Shadows movie.
Uhm. I'd be really really surprised if it was a nominated for anything outside of visual effects, and surprised even then.
Toy Story 3, on the other hand was fantastic. But it has some serious competition with How To Train Your Dragon.
This is the problem I have with his work, really - it's got to a point where they all look and feel like the same movie even though I know they're different movies. As soon as a Burton project is announced you can guess the look/feel and who'll be in it.
Toy Story 3 will definetly be nominated for Best Picture, but there's no telling if it could really win. Up was probably accepted for Best Picture nominee due to Wall-E being screwed over in 2008, and maybe this year the Academy will finally "recognize" what Pixar's achieved here. It has happened in the past, I believe, with other series finale's getting a nice good award like an Oscar. The universal acclaim will also generate a HUGE public backlash like Wall-E if Toy Story 3 isn't nominated, as beloved of a series it is.
It will almost certainly win Best Animated Picture, but How to Train Your Dragon is some tough competition, at the least to say.
Alice in Wonderland will not win the Oscar for Best Picture if its' even nominated.
I'm betting current deadlocks for Best Picture are Toy Story 3, Inception, and possibly Salt and Secretariat. I don't think it will bode well for Deathly Hallows Part I, but who knows. Screening reports from Potter fans - keep in mind Potter fans, not the general public - have been largely positive.
Best Animated Picture nominees will be Toy Story 3, How to Train Your Dragon, Despicable Me, Legend of the Guardians, and no idea with the other nominee(s).
Alice in Wonderland could possibly be nominated for Best VFX, however. Didn't look too shabby at all in there.
Tron 2 needs to win special effects because the first one got screwed by computers being used as a "cheat".
I don't think an animated film will ever win a best motion picture award. If it does win it will probably be a few more decades before it gets there. Even the Best Animated Picture award is kind if silly as there is barely enough decent animated movies to fill the category
