"Missing Link" took home the Golden Globe for best animated feature on Sunday, marking only the fourth time that the top prize did not go to a Disney film.
The film was an underdog heading into the ceremony, as Disney had three films nominated for the prize — "Frozen II," "Toy Story 4" and "The Lion King." Also in contention was DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon: Hidden World."
"Missing Link," produced by Laika Entertainment, was the only nominated film not tied to an existing franchise or a remake of an old classic.
The film tells the tale of Mr. Link, an eight-foot tall, fur-covered Sasquatch, who becomes tired of living a solitary life. He befriends an explorer named Sir Lionel Frost and an adventurer Adelina Fortnight, to help him find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La.
The claymation film, which was released in April 2019, garnered $16.6 million at the domestic box office and around $9.5 million. While "Missing Link" won't see a bump in box office ticket sales, it will likely experience an uptick in DVD, Blu-Ray and digital sales following this win.
Since the category was introduced in 2006, "Missing Link" (2019), "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" (2018), "How to Train Your Dragon 2" (2014) and "The Adventures of Tin Tin" (2011) have been the only non-Disney films to take home the award at the Golden Globe.
