Nomination Reaction: Randy Newman

Best Original Song, 'Toy Story 3'

Randy Newman isn’t about to let a little virus dampen his milestone Oscar nomination for “We Belong Together,” his original song in “Toy Story 3.”

“It always is a nice thing to get nominated, since this is my 20th nomination I believe. And it cheers me up especially now, with this cold and a bottle of Nyquil in me … this nomination really does put a smile on my face. Pixar is always supportive; the more they give me, the better and the easier it is for me to write the song, so it’s always pretty easy to jump back into the thick of things.”
