L-R: “Zootopia” co-directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore, producer Clark Spencer

At the 2017 Academy Awards ceremony last night, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Zootopia was awarded the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Best Animated Short Film went to Pixar Animation Studios’ Piper.

Celebrations were held at both studios today, giving the chance to recognize the teams for their work. Here are some pics I came across on social media.
