'Coco,' a 'love letter to Mexico,' wins best animated film Oscar

Coco director Lee Unkrich dedicates Best Animated Movie Oscar to Mexico: 'Representation matters'

The director thanked all the people of Mexico, adding, " "Coco" would not exist without your endlessly lovely culture and traditions.

Other films nominated in the category this year were DreamWorks Animation's "The Boss Baby", 20th Century Fox's "Ferdinand" and the independent films "The Breadwinner" and "Loving Vincent".

".the biggest thank you of all to the people of Mexico", he said. Marginalized people deserve to feel like they belong.

"Storytellers come from all places at Pixar", Molina said. The award marked the second Oscar for director Lee Unkrich, who previously won the category for "Toy Story 3". The president also claimed that Judge Gonzalo Curiel― an American born to Mexican immigrant parents― wouldn't able to rule fairly in a case involving his controversial border wall (Curiel actually sided with Trump.) Remarks like these gave the film a new urgency, Unkrich said. "Representation matters." "Coco" follows aspiring young musician Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) as he enters a talent show on the eve of Dia de Los Muertos, a traditional Mexican holiday during which family members honor relatives who have passed away.
