‘Coco’ Wins Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association remembered Disney•Pixar’s Coco, honoring the film with the Golden Globe® Award for Best Motion Picture, Animated, during last night’s ceremony in Beverly Hills, California.

Director Lee Unkrich, co-director Adrian Molina and producer Darla K. Anderson accepted the award on behalf of Disney•Pixar’s stunning film, which spotlights the importance of family and following your dreams. “Coco would not exist without the incredible people of Mexico and their beautiful traditions of Día de Muertos,” Unkrich emphasized, and he also expressed the filmmakers’ gratitude to “the loved ones that are no longer with us, who in ways great and small paved the way for us to be the people that we are today. We love you, we honor you, you inspire us.”

Disney•Pixar’s Coco has also been nominated for 13 Annie Awards.
