Coco won the top prize at last night’s 75th annual Golden Globes. The film scored two nominations: one for “Remember Me” in Best Original Song and Best Animated Feature. While we hoped the film would walk away with both awards last night, we are incredibly happy for its Best Animated win!
Watch the clip below of Lee Unkrich accepting the Globe, along with co-director Adrian Molina and producer Darla K. Anderson.
Coco has made such a tremendous impact, both in Mexico and around the world. This truly is an honor for everyone involved, particularly the Mexican and Latino artists, consultants, and the actors who lent their voice talent to the film.
You can also watch the backstage video, in which the three answered questions from reporters and discussed the film’s enormous success worldwide. They re-emphasized their commitment to telling a story free of cliches. They also addressed the current John Lasseter situation, explaining their hopes for creating a safer environment with integrity, and making Pixar a better place for people to create art.
As Adrian Molina said, Coco is an encouraging film, for himself and the rest of the crew who worked on it. By creating an environment that prioritizes and includes more diverse voices, Pixar is taking steps to become better, and hopefully this will lead to even more positive change.
Congratulations to Lee, Adrian, Darla, and the entire cast and crew for their Golden Globe win! Be sure to check back here for more awards show coverage.
