Oscars 2016: ‘Inside Out’ Wins For Best Animated Film
Oscars took the time to celebrate the iconic duo of Woody and Buzz Lightyear as they presented the gold man to their fellow Pixar/Disney family, Inside Out for Best Animated Film.
This is the fourth year in a row that the Pixar/Disney duo has taken home Oscar gold. Brave won in 2013, Frozen in 2014, and Big Hero 6 won last year.
The movie, based around the Amy Pohler-led journey of an 11-year-old girl, was also up for Best Original Screenplay but lost to Spotlight. But considering they movie made almost $857 million worldwide, it was the most successful of all the movies in the category.
The other films up for Animated Feature Film were Anomalsia, Boy & The World, Shaun The Sheep and When Marnie Was There.
Along with Poehler as Joy, Inside Out also starred voice-over work by Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Bill Hader as Fear, Lewis Black as Anger and Mindy Kaling as Disgust with Kaitlyn Dias as 11-year old Riley Anderson. Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan voiced the roles of Riley’s parents.
The film had a total of 10 wins out of 14 nominations at the 43th Annie Awards earlier this month.
