The Oscars want to talk about Encanto!
At the 94th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, the Colombia-set Disney movie — known for its record-breaking ear-worm songs like “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” — won Best Animated Feature.
Producer Yvett Merino said in her speech, “I am so proud to be a part of a film that puts beautiful, diverse characters in front and center, and that people everywhere are seeing themselves in the film.”
Encanto is directed by Jared Bush and Byron Howard. Bush said in his speech, “And we have to thank the entire country of Colombia, our amazing cast. This is a movie about family and we would not be here without our families.”
The other nominees in the category are Flee, Luca, The Mitchells vs. the Machines and Raya and the Last Dragon.
