Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this honor and thanks to every last member of Coco's talented crew who gave their all during the six years that we were making the film. Thank you to the executive teams at Pixar and Disney for trusting us to tell this unique story and empowering us to tell it with the respect and the dignity that it deserved. Thank you to our loved ones who are no longer with us who in ways great and small paved the way for us to be the people that we are today - we love you, we honor you, you inspire us. And finally, Coco would not exist without the incredible people of Mexico and their beautiful traditions of Dia de Muertos - Muchísimas gracias!".
This marks the 8th Golden Globe win for Pixar Animation Studios in the Best Animated Motion Picture category. The history behind the Golden Globes category for Best Animated Feature Film began in the 2006/2007 award season (64th Annual Golden Globes) with Pixar Animation Studios claiming the coveted award each nominated year — with the exception of the 2011/2012 award season - when The Adventures of Tintin was awarded over Cars 2. During the 71st Annual Golden Globes, Pixar's Monsters University was the studio's first film that had been omitted from the Best Animated Feature Film category with the three nominations going to The Croods, Frozen and Despicable Me 2.
