Disney Pixar’s “Coco” Take Home the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature

Coco Golden Globe Win

Last night “Coco” took home the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature.

Disney/Pixar’s acclaimed Dia de Los Muertes (Day of the Dead)-themed blockbuster, which hit theaters in November, was the frontrunner in it’s category.

“Coco” was directed by Oscar winner Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina and produced by “Toy Story 3″’s Darla Anderson.  This film has already earned $554 million worldwide.

Upon taking the stage, Unkrich thanked the artists and execs at Disney and Pixar.  He also gave a special thank you to the people of Mexico, saying, “Coco would not exist without the incredible people of Mexico.”

During an interview backstage, Molina shared, “The message is the same across the world- — remembering where you come from. … We have shown that you can make a film that isn’t filled with the usual cliches and stereotypes and that you can still tell a very specific story about a culture and have it resonate around the world.”

Also nominated in this category was Fox/Blue Sky’s “Ferdinand”, based on Munro Leaf’s children’s book, The Story of Ferdinand, about a non-violent bull, DreamWorks Animation’s comedy “The Boss Baby”, based on Maria Frazee’s illustrated book about a baby and secret agent, GKIDS’ “The Breadwinner”, directed by Nora Twomey of Ireland’s Cartoon Saloon and exec produced by Angelina Jolie; and “Loving Vincent” about the life of Vincent Van Gogh.

“Remember Me” from “Coco” was also up for Original Song. A video of a little boy singing that song to his baby sister, who passed away, went viral earlier this mont.
