“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.

Disclosure: Comcast is the parent company of CNBC and NBCUniversal.
