The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) held their annual film awards last Sunday in London. For Best Animated Film, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen took home the award, winning over Pixar Animation Studios’ Monsters University and Illumination Entertainment/Universal’s Despicable Me 2.

Frozen directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee were in attendance to accept the award. They thanked the over 600 people who worked on the film, along with the songwriting team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and the voice cast for the film.

From the BAFTA website:

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) supports, promotes and develops the art forms of the moving image – film, television and video games – by identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public. As the leading charity in the UK supporting the art forms of the moving image, BAFTA ensures that the very best creative work can be accessed and appreciated by the public.
