Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” is the latest in a long line of successful movies from the animation studio, and the 2018 Academy Awards further validated that. The hit film took home the Oscars for ‘Best Animated Feature’ and ‘Best Original Song’ for “Remember Me.”
The Academy Award for’Best Animated Feature’ was the second for director Lee Unkrich, who also won for his work on “Toy Story 3.” It was also the sixth consecutive Disney film to win the award. In fact, since the award was created in 2001, Disney films have earned 12 of the 17 awards. Pixar films have accounted for nine of those.
