Movie review site Rotten Tomatoes has given Toy Story 3 the Golden Tomato Award, declaring it as the best-reviewed movie of 2010. “Deftly blending comedy, adventure, and honest emotion, Toy Story 3 is a rare second sequel that really works,” stated the website.
This award tops off a year of praise for the Pixar-animated film. The film, showing the final chapter of Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and the rest of Andy’s toys, was nearly rated 100% fresh by critics. This would have made the entire Toy Story series the first-ever trilogy to be rated 100%. The film is also expected to win big at the Academy Awards this year, having been included in the list of films to be nominated by The Producers Guild of America and is expected to be shortlisted by the Academy.
The Golden Tomato runners-up included 3D-animated Dreamworks film How to Train Your Dragon at 98%, the Aaron Sorkin-written and David Fincher-directed The Social Network at 97%, and a tie between the Coen Brothers’ True Grit and period drama The King’s Speech at 95%.
This is the 12th Golden Tomato Award competition. The Golden Tomato Awards are held every year, honoring the best-reviewed mainstream, indie, and international movies.
