FROZEN, HER Receive 2014 'Made in Hollywood' Award
It was announced by Los Angeles City Councilmen Tom LaBonge and Mitch O'Farrell that hit films "Her," "The Croods" and "Frozen" are this year's recipients of the Council's annual Made in Hollywood Awards, according to Variety.
The awards are handed out to Academy Award nominated live-action films which were produced in Southern California. For the first time, this year's recipients included animated feature films that were "made locally in their entirety or substantially."
"This award tradition has been created to encourage the return and growth of film and television production to its historic home in Southern California," LaBonge said in a statement. "There is nothing like a motion picture in Hollywood that portrays such talent not only in front of the camera but behind the camera as well."
Past year's winners include "Argo" and "The Artist". Both feature films earned Oscar nods for Best Picture. The award ceremony will be held on Feb. 13 at the Heart of Hollywood Terrace of the 1600 VINE building.
About Disney's Frozen:
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind "Tangled" and "Wreck-It Ralph," presents "Frozen," a stunning big-screen comedyadventure. 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, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.
