I’m so excited that Disney Pixar’s Coco won the Academy Awards for Best Animated Picture and Best Song for “Remember Me.” Other animated Disney films that have taken an Oscar home are “Zootopia,” “Inside Out,” “Big Hero 6,” “Frozen,” and “Brave.”
I loved when Lee Unkrich accepted the Oscar and said:
“With ‘Coco,’ we tried to take a step forward toward a world where all children can grow up seeing characters in movies that look and talk and live like they do. Marginalized people deserve to feel like they belong. Representation matters.”
It was a surreal moment because I walked the Oscars stairs for the Coco premiere with some amazing fellow Disney Bloggers!
Coco also won best animated film at the Annie Awards, the Golden Globes, the National Board of Review, the Producers Guild of America, and the Visual Effects Society!
“Coco” grossed about $740 million and became the most popular film in Mexico ever and resonated a lot with the people of China. You can learn everything about Coco in the links below that include my Coco Premiere experience and my interviews with the Coco cast and filmmakers:
