Pixar's Onward Served as a Very Emotional Experience for Director Dan Scanlon

Pixar's Onward Served as a Very Emotional Experience for Director Dan Scanlon
Onward, the upcoming fantasy adventure movie from Pixar, looks to be the kind of magical experience we have come to expect from the studio that gave us such animation classics as Toy Story and Inside Out. With Chris Pratt recently revealing that a screening of the movie left grown men in tears, Onward sounds like it will be an emotional journey for all involved, and certainly was for director Dan Scanlon.

"I think we have an amazing opportunity to talk to a lot of the world and have a voice that would get heard. So it's an incredible responsibility I think to use it well. This is a story and a subject matter and a sort of human situation that I believe in a lot and that I'm so lucky to have experienced.

And already just telling it to people on the crew as they joined, they had stuff under

Oscar Best Animated Feature Gallery: Every Winner in Academy Awards History
Before the 2001 film year, it had always been a subject of debate in years prior as to whether the Academy Awards should create a category for animated features. That finally came to fruition with an uptick in the amount of animated movies that were released annually. Prior to the category being established, several animated films would occasionally win special prizes. Such films included “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in 1937 (for which Walt Disney received a normal-sized Oscar and seven miniature ones), “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” in 1988 and “Toy Story” in 1995. “Beauty and the Beast” also managed a major feat in 1991 when it became the first animated film to be nominated for Best Picture, eventually losing to “The Silence of Lambs.” Tour our photo gallery below to see every Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature, from “Shrek” to the most recent.

Pixar's Onward Screening Left Grown Men in Tears Says Chris Pratt

The movies of Pixar have become well-known for reducing everyone in the audience, from children to fully grown adults, to full-blown tears. From the robot love story in Wall-e, to the emotional adventures of Woody and Buzz in the Toy Story series, one thing is for certain when you sit down to watch a movie by Pixar, you are going to cry. Well, you best bring some tissues when you go and see Onward, as star Chris Pratt has taken to social media to declare that the movie left several grown men in tears.

"I can attest! I took about 20 people to a screening-half of them children. Everybody left saying it was their favorite movie ever. Lot of grown man tears. You have made something so very special. Cannot wait for the rest of the world to see your story. Really proud of this one!"

‘Knives Out’ Tops $300M Worldwide As Moviegoers Keep Flinging Dollars At Rian Johnson Whodunit
Rian Johnson’s Lionsgate/Mrc whodunit Knives Out has sailed past the $300M mark worldwide. It’s the latest milestone for the box office anomaly that is becoming the second-highest-grossing original movie of 2019 behind Us and also whipping Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’s $142.4M stateside. More amazing: This Thanksgiving release is still in the domestic top 10 at the box office, ranking ninth last weekend in its 11th frame with $2.3M, -11%, at 1,443 theaters with $159M and running for the Ram Bergman-Johnson T-Street production. Knives Out is one of five films in the past year to remain in the top 10 for at least weekends and the first non-Disney film to reach the mark since Universal’s Best Picture Oscar winner Green Book in March. When the pic’s stateside run concludes, it’s expected to be among the 10 highest-grossing films ever to open over Thanksgiving.

The Hogwarts Houses Of Toy Story Main Characters

Yesterday, at the Academy Awards, Toy Story 4 came away with the award for Best Animated Feature. Twenty-five years after the first Toy Story entered into the world via Pixar, the animated franchise remains one of the pinnacles of storytelling in the world.

From 1995 to 2019, no quadrilogy has delighted the hearts of generations and this is thanks in large part to the lovable cast of toy characters. When combining the character categorization of Harry Potter with the beloved cast of Toy Story, it can easily be determined which members of Andy's toybox belong in which Hogwarts houses. Some are more obvious than others.

Here’s the best of the best for February 2020.

Razzie Awards Nominations 2020 Led by Cats, Rambo 5 and The Fanatic

Razzie Awards Nominations 2020 Led by Cats, Rambo 5 and The Fanatic
Now that the Oscars are all over and done with, and the best of the best have now been honored, it is time to turn to the awards ceremony for the worst of the worst: The Razzies. Well, the nominations are now in and the likes of Cats, Rambo: Last Blood and A Medea Family Funeral take the lead for the 2020 Golden Raspberry Awards.

The much-maligned cinematic adaptation of the musical Cats has garnered a total of nine Razzie nominations, securing a nod in every major category apart from Worst Actor and Worst Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel. Star Rebel Wilson though has been nominated for both Worst Actress and Worst Supporting Actress for her work in The Hustle and Cats, respectively. Hopefully, she has a sense of humor about it.

Rambo: Last Blood is right behind Cats with a total of eight nominations, which continues the long-running tradition of The Razzies dishonoring Sylvester Stallone.

The 92nd Oscar winners in full

The Oscars were celebrated and handed out in a lavish ceremony in Hollywood last night and, as ever, there were many surprises. Arguably, the big winner on the night was Bong Joon Ho and his stunning film, Parasite, which won no less than four awards; Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film. Parasite is the first film to win both the Palme d’Or in Cannes and the Best Picture at the Academy Awards since Marty back in 1955 and also the first film not in the English language to take the top gong.

Parasite

Elsewhere, as expected Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Actor award for his work on Joker, Renée Zellweger won Best Actress for Judy, Brad Pitt scored Best Supporting Actor for his role in Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, and Laura Dern won Best Supporting Actress for Marriage Story.

Oscars 2020 Winners: The Complete List
It was a big night in Hollywood as the 92nd Annual Academy Awards were announced from the heart of Los Angeles at the Dolby Theatre. There were plenty of surprises in store leading up to the big reveal for Best Picture of 2020. Joker and 1917 were the front runners, with Parasite a long shot favorite, but in the end Bong Joon Ho's Parasite swept up at this year's Oscars with Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film.

This year's Oscars offered plenty of unexpected twists and turns, though most of the awards played out just as many suspected and predicted they would.

The Academy Awards went without a host for the second time, following last year's first hostless Oscars in over thirty years. There were some big presenters on hand to handle the show, and present the night's coveted award to each of the winners.

Oscars TV Review: Eminem Can’t Save Another Hostless Night For Hollywood, Despite ‘Parasite’s Historic Best Picture Win

Oscars TV Review: Eminem Can’t Save Another Hostless Night For Hollywood, Despite ‘Parasite’s Historic Best Picture Win
With most of the top categories long locked in, if there was any real drama in the 92nd Oscars on Sunday it was how well another year of no host would fare.

Not so great turned out to be the answer for Hollywood and ABC after the more than three-hour-long ceremony.

After the novelty of last year’s forced lack of a host after the Kevin Hart fiasco, this year seemed to hope going hostless again would hide the cracks in a show produced by Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain that had nothing much new to say on Tinseltown’s biggest night. Hope sometime can’t close the deal, sorry to say.

Yes, with 1917 left out of the party, it was certainly a big and historic night for Parasite and director Bong Joon Ho. Major acting category wins went to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’s Brad Pitt,

Randy Newman Heralds ‘Toy Story 4’ in Return to Stage at 2020 Oscars
Toy Story‘s de facto troubadour Randy Newman took the stage at the 92nd Academy Awards to perform “I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away,” from Toy Story 4.

Newman is nominated for Best Original Song for the track, which scores a hilarious scene in the movie in which Woody the Cowboy tries to convince Forky (a retrofitted spork) that he is a toy and not trash.

Seated at a sleek black Steinway and surrounded by clouds shaped like Toy Story characters, Newman performed the quirky song solo, as per usual.

‘Toy Story 4’ Plays Spoiler To Win Animated Feature Oscar

  • Deadline
Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 won the Oscar on Sunday for Best Animated Feature, upsetting the field including Laika’s Missing Link and Netflix’s Klaus that had been taking precursor awards most of the season.

It’s hard to call the victory an upset when it comes to Pixar and its flagship franchise — Toy Story 3 (2010) remains the only sequel to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature (Toy Story and Toy Story 2 hit theaters before the Animated Feature category was created in 2002).

Toy Story 4, directed by Josh Cooley, has made more than $1 billion worldwide, but it had come in to the night as an underdog. It was shut out at the Annie Awards this year — since the category was launched in 2002, 13 of the 19 winners of the Annies’ top feature prize – and now six of the past nine – went on to claim Oscar gold.
