The reviews have been decent so far, but extremely disappointing by Toy Story standards. The first four Toy Story films had between a 97% and 100% Rotten Tomato score. Lightyear currently stands at 78%. At the moment, the Broadcast Film Critics gives the film an 84/100 rating or 3/4 stars.
Toy Story (1995) was nominated for Original Score, Original Song and Original Screenplay, and won a Special Achievement Oscar. The 1996 Oscars predated the Best Animated Feature category and allowing in more than 5 Best Picture nominees.
Toy Story 2 (1999) received only one Oscar nomination. It was for the extremely sad song, "When She Loved Me", by Rand Newman.
Toy Story 3 (2010) won two Oscars for Animated Feature and Original Song. It was nominated for Picture, Adapted Screenplay and Sound Editing.
Toy Story 4 (2019) beat out Klaus for Animated Feature and scored an Original Song nomination.
There's no question people are going to see it, but will it capture the eyes of the Academy?

I'd bet against it getting anything after these reviews, but it also depends on what else comes out this year and off the top of my head I don't know what it'll be competing against apart from Turning Red and Strange World. Animated film is such an inconsistent category year-to-year.
