It is in vain, but WALL-E deserves a Best Picture push all the same. I'm glad to see this!
I'm inclined to think it won't get the nod, but it certainly does deserve it
2nd best movie of the year so far and would be the best hadnt TDK transformed the super hero genre
Im so glad theyre pushing for best picture...i truly think they could take a nod...the academy LOVES pixar.
It's as good as (and maybe better than) "The Dark Knight". They both deserve nods, particularly since this has been a lousy year for movies. Seen this year: "The Dark Knight", "The Visitor", "Young@Heart", "Bigger, Stronger, Faster*", "WALL-E", and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona". (All worth seeing).Also, "The Band's Visit" is outstanding.
As interesting as it would be to have this as a Best Picture nominee, it is really unlikely. In fact, with the addition of Best Animated Feature at the Oscars, that may have prevented any other animated film to be nominated in the top category because AF already fulfills that duty. I hope Beauty and the Beast does not remain the only exception forever, but any animated film now to break that barrier faces a huge uphill battle.
Wall-E deserves a Best picture nomination!
