FROZEN Wins BAFTA For Best Animated FeatureDisney's super-successful animated movie musical FROZEN just earned yet another accolade in nabbing the Best Animated Feature prize at the 2014 BAFTAs earlier today.

The British Academy Of Film & Television Arts honored FROZEN with the Best Animated Feature prize at the starry ceremony currently taking place in the UK, with co-directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck accepting the trophy and making a heartfelt speech.

Of note, FROZEN beat out fellow nominees MONSTERS UNIVERSITY and DESPICABLE ME 2 for the award.

The official synopsis for FROZEN is as follows: "Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey-teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven-to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom."

FROZEN is directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, with a screenplay by Jennifer Lee and Shane Morris based on the Hans Christian Andersen story THE SNOW QUEEN. FROZEN stars the voice talents of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Santino Fontana, Josh Gad and more.

FROZEN is currently in movie theaters nationwide.
