A brand new ‘for your consideration’ ad for Toy Story 3 has debuted, and the creativity in the ad series has yet to die down.

While the other ads solely stated that Toy Story 3 was “The Best Reviewed Film of the Year,” this one has been updated to include the additional acclaim that has been piled on the film these past few weeks:
- Best Animated Feature (Golden Globe Nominee)
- Best Picture & Best Animated Feature (Critics’ Choice Award Nominee)
- Best Animated Feature (National Board of Review)
- Best Film of the Year (TIME Magazine)
- Top 10 Film of the Year (American Film Institute)
With several more print ads to come, I can hardly wait to see what the other ads will look like!
Thanks to Movielicious for the heads up about the new ad.

Richard Corliss of TIME put together his top picks for the best films of 2010. What film did he place at the very top of the list? None other than Lee Unkrich’s Toy Story 3!

That’s quite the amount of flattery from Mr. Corliss. It is great to see Toy Story 3, director Lee Unkrich, and Pixar as a whole continue to get the recognition that they have earned.
