Disney's Frozen Victorious on Oscar Night.

Last night was the glitziest night in the Entertainment calendar, as the 86th Annual Academy Awards took place. In a night that was light on surprises (pretty much all the favourites took home a little gold baldy) the animation category was no different. Disney's Frozen was odds on to take the Best Animated Feature Oscar, and take it it did. The Oscar brings to a head a glorious run for the House Of Mouse's return to musicals, which has seen it already nab a host of awards including a BAFTA and a ton of Annies. Since the Animated Feature Oscar was introduced a little over a decade ago, this is the first time an in-house Disney 'toon has triumphed. Of course, they had a steak in Pixar's many victories and even distributed Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away (which took the crown in 2002). Frozen beat out Miyazaki's final feature The Wind Rises, Dreamworks' The Croods, Ernest & Celestine and Despicable Me 2.

Frozen also took home another award- Best Original Song, for Let It Go. It would have been a perfect night for Disney had Get A Horse won Best Animated Short as well, but it was not to be. The Mickey Mouse starring short (which played before Frozen) lost out to French effort Mr. Hublot from Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares. Check out the trailer below:
