Still from Laika Entertainment’s “Missing Link.”
“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 NBCUniversal’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 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.
