The highest-grossing ani­mated film of 2012 won the Golden Globe Award for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture Film on Sun­day night.

Brave, co-produced by Pixar Ani­ma­tion Stu­dios and Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures, made $237.2 mil­lion in North Amer­ica alone to have the seventh-highest gross of any movie — ani­mated or oth­er­wise — released last year.

It won out in the cat­e­gory over fel­low Dis­ney releases Franken­wee­nie (Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures) and Wreck-It Ralph (Walt Dis­ney Pictures/Walt Dis­ney Ani­ma­tion Stu­dios; Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures), as well as nom­i­nees Hotel Tran­syl­va­nia (Colum­bia Pictures/Sony Pic­tures Ani­ma­tion and Rise of the Guardians (Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion LLC).

Brave direc­tor Mark Andrews received the Golden Globe from come­dian Sacha Baron Cohen, who feigned drunk­en­ness onstage.

Holy cow! Being brave is about being true to your­self and allow­ing your loved ones the same free­dom,” said Andrews.

The Golden Globes are pre­sented by the Hol­ly­wood For­eign Press Asso­ci­a­tion. Sunday’s awards cer­e­mony aired live on NBC.
