LOS ANGELES - “Toy Story 3″, the highest grosser of 2010, won the Oscar in the best animated feature film category at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards here.
The movie, the third in the “Toy Story” series, made $1.1 billion at the box office - even more than films like Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, Christopher Nolan’s “Inception”, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One” and “Shrek Forever After”.
Directed by Lee Unkrich, the movie was nominated in four categories - best animated feature, best adapted screenplay, best original song, and best sound editing for this year’s Oscars.
Aaron Sorkin won his first ever Oscar for adapted screenplay for “The Social Network”, while David Seidler walked away with the golden statuette for best writing, screenplay written directly for the screen for “The King’s Speech” Sunday at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre.
“The King’s Speech” is about Britain’s King George VI who overcomes his stammering with the help of his speech therapist Lionel Logue.
