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.
