Oscar 2022 has announced the full list of winners on March 28, 2022. In this 94th Academy Awards event, Disney’s Encanto (2021) managed to take home the trophy for “Best Animated Film”. This film managed to beat Luca (2021) and Raya and the Last Dragon (2021), which are also Disney animated films that fall into that category.
For your information, Encanto tells the story of the Madrigal family, each of which has unique abilities. However, there is one family member named Mirabel who does not have any power so he must find his identity in order to become a real part of the family. Encanto also received a very positive response from critics because of his heartwarming story.
In addition to “Best Animated Film”, Encanto was also nominated for two other nominations at the 2022 Oscar, namely “Best Original Score” and “Best Original Song”. Until this article was written, Encanto has also won a trophy in the “Best Original Song” category through his song entitled “Dos Oruguitas”.
Encanto’s win at the 2022 Oscar is the second time for Byron Howard as director. Because, in 2017, Howard also won the “Best Animated Film” award at the Oscars through the film Zootopia (2016) which he directed. However, for Jared Bush who co-directed Encanto, this was his first nomination and win at the Oscars.
