'Toy Story 3' premiere: Hollywood comes out to play

June 14, 2010 | 10:52 am

"Toy Story 3" premiered Sunday in Hollywood, making you wish you had a cheat sheet that matched all the animated toys with all the grown-up girls and boys walking the red carpet.

We were heartbroken, however, to see no Ken for new cast member Michael Keaton. Perhaps he was stuck in line at the valet with Barbie, trying to hand off the pink Corvette?

Also on the premises: Britney Spears, rocking a demure-on-top, daring-on-the-bottom baby-doll dress. Families in attendance included those of Barbie voice Jodie Benson, Don Cheadle, Wayne Brady and Weird Al Yankovic. And only a short time after receiving his star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, singer-composer Randy Newman hit the red carpet again. Why not -- Newman's notched two Academy Award nominations thanks to the "Toy Story" franchise, and it was another Pixar film, "Monsters, Inc.," that got him his Oscar win.
