Is Toy Story 3 an Oscar Contender?

Walt Disney Studios have taken steps that may ensure its critically-acclaimed Toy Story 3 will get an Oscar nod:  the entire script has been published online.

The screenplay, written by Michael Arndt, is being made available on the Disney awards website for A.M.P.A.S. voters to review.

If Disney succeeds in gaining an Oscar nomination for Toy Story 3 in the Best Adapted Screenplay category, it is expected to go up against The Social Network.

Interesting to note is that the screenplay would only be considered in the Adapted Screenplay category because it is a sequel.  Only the first film in a series is considered to be an original.

Watch disZine to see if Woody and the Gang make it back for another Academy Awards Show.
