Academy Award nominations were announced this morning and [I]Toy Story 3[/I] led the charge for Disney, getting five nominations including Best Picture and Best Animated Feature Film. Tim Burton's [I]Alice in Wonderland[/I] received three nominations for Art Direction, Costume Design and Visual Effects.

There were a few surprises for Disney, as [I]Tangled[/I] failed to receive a nomination for Best Animated Feature Film. With only three slots available, the Rapunzel fairy tale was bumped by the French film [I]The Illusionist. [/I]The remaining nomination went to Dreamworks' [I]How to Train Your Dragon[/I]. [I]Tangled's[/I] only nomination was for Original Song ("I See the Light").

Another surprise was [I]Tron: Legacy[/I] only scoring a single nomination for Sound Editing and getting shut out of Visual Effects and Original Score.

    While I congratulation Toy Story 3 for its nomination, I am saddened that Tangled got snubbed. Tangled is truly a great film and deserves best Animated film nomination. The Academy was just wrong to over look it.
