Andy Says: 'Toy Story 3' Should Win The Academy Award For Best Picture!

Thu, February 24, 2011 6:25pm EDT by 4 Comments

An animated feature has never won the Best Picture Oscar before, and ‘Toy Story 3′ is a change we can believe in. It’s the Barack Obama of cinema!

I like to root for life’s underdogs — Canada, Lindsay Lohan, and the WNBA to name a few – but that’s hardly the only reason I believe Toy Story 3 deserves to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards this Sunday. The movie is a masterpiece, one that presents an emotionally charged story through brilliant writing and stunning visuals.

I’m man enough to admit that I bawled like an orphaned baby girl when those toys held hands and waited for death (oops, spoiler alert.) But most importantly, Toy Story 3 should win Best Picture because it’s literally every other nominee rolled into one.

  • True Grit: Woody, Jessie, etc. are all cow-folk.
  • 127 Hours: Mr. Potato Head loses his arm.
  • The Kids Are All Right: Andy’s dad is M.I.A., so it’s fair to speculate that his mom might be a lesbian.
  • Winter’s Bone: The toys battle all odds to reunite with the person they love.
  • The King’s Speech: Buzz loses his ability to speak properly.
  • Black Swan: Andy is betrayed by his controlling mother, who throws out his favorite toys.
  • Inception: Embittered by the loss of the one he loved, Lots-O-Huggin Bear works to skew everyone’s perception of reality.
  • The Social Network: Lots-O-Huggin Bear moves in on Woody’s territory and steals all his friends.
  • The Fighter: The toys are put in boxes… and there are boxERS in The Fighter. (Sorry, I did not see this one.)

“The Barack Obama of cinema” – that’s the most ridiculous thing ever. Seriously, between this and Lara’s imbecilic advice, like should you have sex in the bathroom at a family affair, it’s clear this site is written by morons. That Bonnie Fuller also seems like an idiot savant, minus the savant part.

1. Bonnie Fuller did not write this article. I did. Andy Swift.

2. The author of the bathroom sex post is Laura, not Lara

3. I stand by my statement about Toy Story being the Obama of cinema.
