"Frozen" was the No. 1 movie on demand for the first quarter of 2014, according to Rentrak, which announced the Top 10 movies on demand of the quarter. In the animated musical “Frozen,” Anna (voice of Kristen Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), the Snow Queen, and save their kingdom from eternal winter. "Frozen" won two Oscars: Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (for "Let It Go"). "Frozen" got excellent reviews from critics and now holds the record for the highest-grossing animated film of all time.

Of the Top 10 movies ranked in VOD rentals for the first quarter of 2014, six were Oscar-nominated films: "Frozen," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "12 Years a Slave," "Bad Grandpa" and "The Wolf of Wall Street." Three of those six movies won Oscars: "Frozen," "Gravity" and "12 Years a Slave." The Oscar ceremony airs in the first quarter of the year, so the awards show plays a big role in movie rentals during that period of time.

Here are the Top 10 movies on demand from Jan. 1 to March 31, 2014:

1. Frozen

2. Captain Phillips

3. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

4. Gravity

5. 12 Years a Slave

6. Bad Grandpa

7. Thor: The Dark World

8. Ender's Game

9. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2
