Disney’s Zootopia just won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film at the 89th Academy Awards. The film was up against Moana, Kubo and the Two Strings, My Life as A Zucchini, and The Red Turtle. Directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore accepted the award along with producer Clark Spencer. This was the first Oscar win for all three.
During his acceptance speech, Moore said, “We are so grateful to the audiences all over the world who embraced this story of tolerance being more powerful than fear of the other.”
Disney has a history of doing well in the Animated Feature category. Last year Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out picked up the award. The year before that, Disney’s Big Hero 6 won.
