Coco marks director Unkrich's second Oscar win after his 2010 win for Toy Story 3 in the same category.

"With 'Coco, ' we tried to take a step forward toward a world where all children can grow up seeing characters in movies that look and talk and live like they do".

Disney/Pixar's Coco took home the Academy Award for best animated feature, topping a field that including The Boss Baby, Ferdinand and indies Loving Vincent and The Breadwinner. "Representation matters", Unkrich said while accepting the trophy. Marginalized people deserve to feel like they belong.

"Coco is proof that art can change and connect the world", Anderson said. The first was for Best Animated Feature.

But it worked: the film has grossed $740 million worldwide, winning a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, two Critics' Choice Awards and now the Oscar.

"Coco" tells the story of an aspiring musician (Miguel) who has to face his family's prejudices against music.

"When we began making this movie six years ago, it was a very different political climate", he said at a gala premiere in Mexico City in October. When Miguel disobeys his family, he magically winds up in the Land of the Dead, where he learns his family history and encounters his ancestors to find his way back to the land of the living.

The movie featured an all-Latino voice cast, also including Gael Garcia Bernal, Alanna Ubach, Renee Victor, Edward James Olmos, Ana Ofelia Murguia, Alfonso Arau, Selene Luna, Cheech Marin, Gabriel Iglesias, Sofia Espinosa, and Jaime Camil. "So it was a big challenge because of the landscaping in a place, in a town, in a plaza, everywhere in Mexico you keep hearing non-stop music and all kinds of music [.] The whole idea was to make music to have a sonic landscape that smells like Mexico".
