The New York Times covers a story that was a long time coming — Disney staffers celebrating an animated feature winning an Oscar. “The gathering at Walt Disney Animation here was supposed to be a giddy celebration. The studio had achieved the ultimate validation for its hard-fought creative rebirth: Frozen, its Nordic tale of two sisters and a wisecracking snowman, won two Oscars on Sunday, the same day the film crossed $1 billion at the global box office… But the party Monday afternoon grew unexpectedly serious, as multiple Disney executives became overwhelmed recalling just how far the studio had come… Winning an Academy Award is a coup for any movie company, but the Frozen honors carry extra weight for Disney. Ever since the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences created the best animated feature prize in 2001, Pixar has dominated the category, winning seven times. Rivals including DreamWorks Animation have won all other years… Never winning was a humiliation for a lot of artists at Disney, the shop where the art of mainstream animation was essentially born”.

The Pixar team that came into Disney Animation in 2006 believes their work at changing the culture at the then-struggling studio has paid off over the last few years, according to the Wall Street Journal. Disney and Pixar president Ed Catmull said, “When we came to Disney eight years ago, it was to bring the artistic integrity into the studio, and bring that flair back. So, six films in a row have had great scores on Rotten Tomatoes, but the last three have finally risen above. This is now the new Disney.” John Lasseter, the chief creative officer of both companies added they did it by turning Disney into a filmmaker-driven studio like Pixar. “We are so, so excited to have the renaissance of Disney animation. We were dedicated to bringing the studio back”.
