  • Coco director Lee Unkrich dedicates Best Animated Movie Oscar to Mexico: 'Representation matters'

Pixar has won the "Best Animated Feature; trophy nine times, for "Coco", "Inside Out", "Brave", "Toy Story 3", "Up", "Wall-E", "Ratatouille", "The Incredibles" and "Finding Nemo".

The film beat out fellow nominees The Boss Baby, The Breadwinner, Ferdinand, and Loving Vincent.

Coco was competing in a somewhat odd field for the Best Animated Feature award, thanks to a new rule change that allows filmmakers who aren't animators to nominate for the category.

Backstage, Unkrich said he and everyone else involved in the film felt their job was even more important when President Donald Trump took office. Marginalized people deserve to feel like they belong. It's also nominated for best animated feature, which it won shortly after the performance.

"Thank you to the Academy".

Onstage, Anderson called Coco "proof that art can connect and change the world, this can only be done when we have a place for everyone and anyone who feels like an "other" to be heard".

Honouring the best in the world of movies, the Oscars are not without their own quirks. It premiered in October a year ago.

"Coco" tells the story of an aspiring musician (Miguel) who has to face his family's prejudices against music. After a confrontation with his family, Miguel becomes trapped in the Land of the Dead, where his long-dead ancestors help return him to the land of the living. The film took six years to produce, with members of the crew travelling to Mexico, as part of their research, to gain an authentic sense of the country's music and culture.

It comes after the animation won the awards for best animated movie at the Golden Globes, Baftas, New York Film Critics Circle and Producers Guild.

The film's vocal cast includes Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Edward James Olmos, Renee Victor and Cheech Marin.
