An Oscar for Wall-E?
The team at Disney and Pixar is hoping its newest creation, Wall-E, will bring in the big bucks this weekend, and a campaign has already begun to have the film for the Best Picture Oscar, rather than just Best Animated Feature.
“If today’s moviegoers warm to Wall-E the way an earlier generation embraced E.T. the Extra-Terrestial, then the latest Pixar effort could find itself contending with the big boys for best picture,” said The Hollywood Reporter. New York Magazine’s Vulture blog is already on board with the campaign.
