Sony Pictures Animation’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won the Oscar for best animated feature, capping an extraordinary award season run in which it won nearly every major animation award.
Spider-Verse marks the first time that a non-Walt Disney Company has won the award in this category since Rango in 2012. Prior to tonight’s win, the Walt Disney Company had won the award for 10 out of the last 11 years.
The award was accepted onstage by producer Phil Lord and Chris Miller and directors Peter Ramsey, Bob Persichetti, and Rodney Rothman. Ramsey becomes the first African-American director to win the feature animation Oscar in the 18-year history of the category.
