Disney's hit animated feature film, "Frozen," took home the Academy Award for both Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song at the 86th Annual Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, March 2.

Disney's breakout movie of 2013, which is the fourth highest-grossing animated film of all-time, took home the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, winning out over DreamWorks' prehistoric comedy "The Croods," Universal's "Despicable Me 2," and Hayao Miyazaki's last animated feature film, "The Wind Rises." The Wrap reports that on hand to accept the award were "Frozen" co-directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, as well as producer Peter Del Vecho. Chris Buck dedicated the award to his late son, Ryder Buck, whom he called his "guardian angel."

Along with winning for Best Animated Feature, "Let It Go" also took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song, just moments after a live performance by Idina Menzel, who sings it as Queen Elsa in the movie. "Let It Go" has gotten over 100 million views on YouTube, and has gone Platinum with over 1.2 million sales of the hit single.

"Frozen" has also won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature, as well as several Annie Awards for Best Animated Feature and Outstanding Achievements in an Animated Feature Production for Directing, Music, and Voice Acting.
