Big Hero 6 wins Oscar for Best Animated Feature

New, 35 comments

Even though fans might still lament The Lego Movie being snubbed for the Best Animated Feature award, Marvel and Disney did happily manage to take home the award for the perfectly enjoyable superhero film Big Hero 6. It's Marvel's first major win at the Academy Awards, and Walt Disney Animation Studio's second since last year's win for Frozen.

Big Hero 6, which was loosely adapted from the quirky '90s comic of the same name, was up against the likes of DreamWorks' How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Studio Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. The film quietly became a big hit last year, pulling in $219 million at the box office.
