Golden Globes nominations: 'Toy Story 3'

December 14, 2010 |  8:00 am

"Toy Story 3" director Lee Unkrich was pretty pleased with his film's nomination in the Globes' animation category, but for Pixar, award nominations must be old hat, right?

"We never take it for granted," Unkrich says. "Itís a big honor to be recognized by any group. Awards were the last thing on our mind. We all figured while we were naming it with the 3 after the title, we wouldnít have any luck in awards."

Might this be the year when an animated film wins a best picture Oscar? "Iíd certainly be thrilled if that ended up happening," he says. "When we make our movies, we donít think of them as being any different. We just try to make good movies. The thought that we would be seen alongside our live-action brethren is exciting for us."
