3-D AWARDS: 'Toy Story 3,' 'Train Your Dragon' both emerge as winners
Both the Disney/Pixar film and the DreamWorks Animation movie -- which will go head-to-head at this month's Academy Awards -- were honored late Wednesday at the second annual International 3D Society 3D Creative Arts Awards at Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theater.
"Toy Story 3" -- which is also nominated for a Best Picture Oscar -- won the People's Choice Award for Favorite 3-D Animated Movie. Other Disney/Pixar winners included "TRON: Legacy" (Live Action 3-D Feature of the Year and Best 3-D Stereography/Live Action); "Day & Night" (Short 3-D Motion Picture -- Narrative); "Tangled" (Best 3-D Scene of the Year); and "Alice in Wonderland" (Outstanding Achievement: 2D-to-3D Converted Feature).
"How to Train Your Dragon" also picked up awards for Best 3-D Stereography/Animated and 3-D Talent Award (Jay Baruchel). (Last weekend, "Dragon" also won top honors at the animation industry's Annie Awards, which Disney boycotted.)
Lenny Lipton, the "ZScreen" inventor who is considered one of the "fathers of 3-D," received the Century Award for Lifetime Achievement, and James Cameron of Lightstorm Entertainment won the Harold Lloyd Award.
The other People's Choice Award -- for Live Action Movie -- went to "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader."
The Best 3-D Documentary Award went to IMAX's "Hubble 3D"; and "Call of Duty: Black Ops" won the 3-D Video Game Award.
The International 3D Society -- a community of professonals "dedicated to the advancement of the art and sciences of stereoscopic 3D technologies" -- says this is the first awards show to be telecast in 3-D (3net technology); the event will be produced as a two-hour special to air on 3net later this year.
