“Missing Link” took home the Golden Globe for best animated film in the latest edition of the famous awards held this Sunday. That the Grand Prize went to this film was undoubtedly a great surprise that not even the critics expected, since Disney had three films nominated for the award: “Frozen II”, “Toy Story 4″ and “The Lion King”.

“Missing Link”, produced by Laika Entertainment, was the only film nominated for the Golden Globes that is not linked to an existing franchise or a new version of an old classic. The film tells the story of Mr. Link, an eight-foot tall, thick furred Yeti, who gets tired of living a lonely life and decides to become friends with an explorer named Sir Lionel Frost and an adventurer named Adelina Quincena. Together they will live endless adventures to find Link’s family, who are lost in the legendary Shangri-La Valley.

The plasticine film, which was released in April 2019, grossed $16.6 million at the U.S. box office and about $9.5 million worldwide. While “Missing Link” will not see an increase in box office sales, it is likely to experience an increase in DVD, Blu-Ray and digital sales following this victory.

Since the introduction of the best animated film category in 2006, “Missing Link” (2019), “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” (2018), “How to Train Your Dragon 2” (2014) and “The Adventures of Tin Tin” (2011) have been the only non-Disney films to take home the award at the Golden Globes.
