Dis­ney fairy tale “Tan­gled” was named Best Ani­ma­tion on Wednes­day night at Britain’s National Movie Awards, which are cho­sen by mem­bers of the public.

Tan­gled was pre­sented with the award by British For­mula One rac­ing dri­ver Lewis Hamil­ton, who will voice a race­car named — wait for it — Lewis Hamil­ton in next month’s Pixar-Disney sequel Cars 2.

In the Ani­ma­tion cat­e­gory, Tan­gled won out over rivals Despi­ca­ble Me, Gnomeo & Juliet and Mega­mind.

His­tor­i­cal drama The King’s Speech dom­i­nated the awards cer­e­mony, win­ning three major hon­ors. It won the Best Drama prize and Per­for­mance Of The Year for Colin Firth, who starred as King George VI. In addi­tion, it received the Spe­cial Recog­ni­tion prize for an out­stand­ing movie performance.

The awards cer­e­mony took place at London’s Wem­b­ley Arena.
