Big Hero 6 and Feast win Academy Awards


bighero6 Walt Disney Animation Studios took home two Academy Awards last night, sweeping the animation category.  Big Hero 6 won the award for Best Animated Feature and Feast, the short that preceded Big Hero 6, won the award for Best Animated Short Film.  Surprisingly, this is only the second time the company’s animation division has won the Oscar in the Animated Feature category since it was added to the ceremony in 2001.  Last year’s victory for Frozen was the first, but PIXAR had won the award seven times before.  The victories come at an appropriate time as the DVD and Blu-ray versions of Big Hero 6 are to be released on February 24th, just two days after the ceremony.  To date, Big Hero 6 has grossed over $200 million at the box office.
