"Wall-E" scored 6 Oscar nominations including Best Animated Feature, Best Original Screenplay, Best Achievement in sound editing, Best Achievement in sound mixing, Best Achievement in music, and Best Original Song.
So what does "Wall-E" director have to say about all the love?
"We are ecstatic and grateful for the Academy's generous and humbling recognition of ‘WALL•E.’ It is an honor and privilege to make films at Pixar, where we have grown into a great, big family. This is a tribute to all of us at Pixar and Disney who do our best to make films, not just animated films, but films for everyone that just happen to be animated."
--Andrew Stanton, Director of "WALL•E"

So many snubs, so little time. And yeah, the greatest crime of all was "The Dark Knight" got ignored! Ignored! And Bruce Springsteen's harrowing song for "The Wrestler" snubbed? Que Horror!
Dev Patel for "Slumdog Millionaire," Clint Eastwood's performance for "Gran Torino," "Let the Right One In" for Foreign Language Film, and so on and so forth.
So I did some sleuthing, and found this article from Variety! The headline? Oscar Voting System Deciphered!
Yeah, how do Academy members really vote? And how do PricewaterhouseCoopers really tally the votes?
Well, click here, it's a good read, you'll feel better!
