“Only a handful of sequels have ever been nominated so we really didn’t think the best picture nomination was in the cards for us. The fact that we did get nominated in that category makes us very, very proud.”

On January 25, 2011, the nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards were announced from the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California. The Walt Disney Company managed to secure 13 nominations, with Toy Story 3 receiving five (Best Picture, Best Animated Feature Film, Adapted Screenplay, Original Song, and Sound Editing), the Pixar short Day and Night receiving one (Best Animated Short Film), Tangled receiving one (Best Original Song), Alice in Wonderland receiving three (Achievement in Costume Design, Art Direction, and Achievement in Visual Effects), TRON: Legacy receiving one (Achievement in Sound Editing), Iron Man 2 receiving one (Achievement in Visual Effects), and The Tempest receiving one (Achievement in Costume Design). In the end, Disney would walk away with four: Best Animated Feature for Toy Story 3, Best Original Song for “We Belong Together” from Toy Story 3, and Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design for Alice in Wonderland.
