‘Frozen,’ ‘Grav­ity’ Take Top VFX and Toon Os­cars ...

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame -

It was a big night for Frozen at the 86th an­nual Academy Awards, as the smash-hit CG mu­si­cal be­came the first Dis­ney fea­ture to win the Best An­i­mated Os­car since the cat­e­gory was in­au­gu­rated in 2001. Di­rected by Jennifer Lee, who also wrote the screen­play, and Chris Buck, the movie also took home the Best Orig­i­nal Song tro­phy. “Let It Go,” as per­formed by Id­ina Men­zel, of­fered not only one of the high­lights of the March 2 cer­e­mony, but also cre­ated an in­stant meme when John Tra­volta fum­bled her in­tro­duc­tion by call­ing her “Adele Men­zeen.” The honor also saw song­writer Robert Lopez, who wrote the song with his wife, Kris­ten An­der­son-Lopez, be­come the youngest mem­ber of the EGOT club — win­ning an Emmy, Grammy, Os­car and Tony. The Best An­i­mated Short cat­e­gory had heav­ily fa­vored Dis­ney’s Get A Horse go­ing into the cer­e­mony, but the honor went to the French short Mr. Hublot. On the vis­ual ef­fects front, Grav­ity ran away with it, as ex­pected. The win for vis­ual ef­fects su­per­vi­sor Tim Web­ber, Chris Lawrence, David Shirk and Neil Cor­bould was one of seven wins for the film for the night.
