Photo Gallery: Pixar Screens Toy Story 3, Receives ShoWest Big Ten Award

Jordin Sparks, Schwartz Family at Disney Store Times Square Grand Opening Party (Photo by Stuart Ramson) Earlier today, after a presentation of Toy Story 3 to attendees at the ShoWest convention at the Paris hotel in Las Vegas, Disney/Pixar’s John Lasseter, Lee Unkrich and Darla Anderson accepted the Big Ten award on behalf of Pixar Animation Studios in honor of its ten-in-a-row box office smashes.

The award may be a bit premature, however, if even a single percent of what we have heard from early reviews of Toy Story 3 is true. If so, the crew at Pixar are best advised to start working on their Big Eleven award acceptance speech.
