Frozen has followed its Oscar success by crossing the $1 billion-mark (£598m) at the worldwide box office.
The Disney animation, which won Best Animated Feature and Original Song at Sunday's Academy Awards, has made an estimated $388.8 million in the Us and $611.5 million internationally since its release last November.
The movie is also the second highest-grossing animated film of all time globally and the most profitable non-sequel animated picture ever. It is also yet to release in Japan, where it arrives on March 14.
At the Oscars, it became the studio's first Best Animated Feature win in history.
“Frozen” had several reasons to celebrate last night (excluding the flubbed introduction of star Idina Menzel). Aside from nabbing two Oscars, including Disney’s first best animated feature win in history, the toon also crossed the $1 billion-mark at the worldwide box office.
The movie is the studio’s seventh release to reach the milestone, joining “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Toy Story 3,” “Alice in Wonderland,” and the second and fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.
Having earned an estimated $388.8 million Stateside and $611.5 million internationally since its late November release, “Frozen” is the second highest-grossing animated film of all time globally and the most profitable non-sequel animated pic ever.
Even more impressive is the fact that the film joined the billion-dollar B.O. club before debuting in Japan. It will bow in theaters there on March 14 and will be released on DVD in the U.S. four days later. »

In the dim of the Governors Ball, the Oscar winners fairly glow with their statues and their unadulterated delight. There’s a whole mess of heavy golden men on a small table on a riser, now the property of the team that made “Frozen,” including directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck. The movie’s theme song, “Let It Go,” also won the Oscar for Best Song. Disney CEO Bob Iger, normally the buttoned-down executive, is grinning from ear to ear, taking a moment to hold all the Oscars for a photo opp (yes he posed for TheWrap). The win marks a personal triumph, »

While live-blogging the Oscars you really don't get too much of a chance to take in all the acceptance speeches. I catch a few moments here and there, and I can pretty much tell when the air is being let out of the room as well as those moments where someone is really capturing the moment. What I've put together below are the five speeches where I think the winner really managed to stand-out. I also love the true excitement coupled with the words chosen in these speeches. Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave, especially, seemed to capture the room with her infectious smile as much as Jennifer Lawrence a year before, not to forget her brother, Peter, who photobombed Ellen's Twitter-breaking selfie and is clearly someone very special in Lupita's life and she in his. The only truly strange thing about these speeches is John Ridley and Steve McQueen failing »

The Oscars honor the best performances on film, but the telecast is all about celebrating the best speeches. Here’s how we called it:
Running over three minutes, the Best Actor acceptance speech was a monument of pure unfiltered McConaughey-ness. He thanked God. He thanked his late father: “I know he’s up there right now, with a big pot of gumbo…he’s probably in his underwear, and he’s got a cold can of Miller Lite, and he’s dancin’.” He went on a very long tangent about how his hero is himself — or rather, »

Sunday night’s Oscar winners had plenty to say onstage (Best Actor champ Matthew McConaughey even snuck in an “Alright, alright, alright”), but there’s always more to express after winning the biggest award in film. That’s where the backstage press room comes in, and EW was there to collect all the best moments and bons mots you didn’t see on TV.
For some, holding a golden statuette put them in a playful mood, including Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor for Dallas Buyers Club), who passed his new hardware around the press room so everyone could share in his victory, »

After a lengthy awards season that lasted three long months, the race for the Oscars came to a conclusion tonight at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
This year’s 86th Academy Awards saw a split between Best Picture and Director. 12 Years A Slave won three, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong’o.
Backstage, producer/actor Brad Pitt said, “ I love this movie. I ‑‑ just as a film, as a lover of film, the filmmaking, the ‑‑ this heroic story of a man in this inhumane situation trying to get back to his family. I love this film. I love the filmmaking. It’s counterintuitive to the way we’re making films today. It’s a real achievement by Mr. McQueen here. I love this movie. I think it’s important. I think it’s important because it deals with our history that we haven »

Performance by an actress in a supporting role
Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years a Slave
Yes! Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition. It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s. And so I want to salute the spirit of Patsey for her guidance. And for Solomon, thank you for telling her story and your own. Steve McQueen, you charge everything you fashion with a breath of your own spirit. Thank you so much for putting me in this position. This has been the joy of my life.

In a contest that held suspense up until the last minute, Fox Searchlight’s “12 Years a Slave” took the best-picture prize Sunday at the 86th Academy Awards and established a few Oscar records in the process. Winning three of its nine nominations, the film is the first best-picture win for a black producer (Steve McQueen, who also directed). That in itself is significant, but it’s got bigger implications: In 85 previous years, blacks have only won in a handful of categories, including acting (14 wins), screenplay (1 win), sound (four wins) and music (7 wins).

After the 2012 “Argo,” this is the second consecutive win for a film produced by top stars: Last year, it was George Clooney and Ben Affleck, among others; in this case, Brad Pitt, the second in this category after “Moneyball.” (He also has three acting noms.) It’s the second nom for Dede Gardner, »

The Best Animated Feature category was a tight race, but ultimately Frozen was the winner at this year.s 86th Annual Academy Awards. The billion dollar Disney hit, which is still playing in theaters nationwide, has wound up a champion, with the Academy honoring directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee with a little gold statuette. There was a vocal contingent hoping for Hayao Miyazaki.s The Wind Rises to take the top prize. Being the final film of animation titan Miyazaki was not enough to sway voters from the Disney juggernaut, even as it currently plays in theaters in a heavily-supervised dubbed edition. For those who have not seen the film, it follows a princess who must trek into the wilderness to find her sister, only to discover the icy super-powered truth behind her disappearance. The film is also nominated in the Best Original Song category, and has already become »
