Presumptive Oscar frontrunner Coco collected the Golden Globe for best animated feature on Sunday.

Disney/Pixar’s acclaimed Dia de Los Muertes (Day of the Dead)-themed blockbuster — directed by Oscar winner Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3), co-directed by Adrian Molina and produced by Toy Story 3’s Darla Anderson — has already earned $554 million worldwide.

Coco’s awards run also seems to be steering clear of impact from raised awareness of harassment, despite the fact that its executive producer and Disney/Pixar’s chief creative John Lasseter took a leave of absence from the studio just prior to the film’s release, citing “missteps” amid alleged misconduct.

Asked about these allegations backstage, Anderson said, “We wanted to focus on being in solidarity with tonight’s movement. We have been looking at a lot of things at making our environment as safe as possible.”

Said Unkrich, “Darla is the general of our army. We tried to create an environment that welcomed as many diverse voices as possible. It was a very diverse crew and we are proud of that. Moving ahead we are learning from the lessons of what we did on Coco. At Pixar, we have been taking steps and we will continue to move towards making it an even better place for people to create art.”

Onstage, Unkrich thanked the artists and execs at Disney and Pixar, as well as the people of Mexico, saying, “Coco would not exist without the incredible people of Mexico.”

Said Molina backstage: “The message is the same across the world- — remembering where you come from. … We have shown that you can make a film that isn’t filled with the usual cliches and stereotypes and that you can still tell a very specific story about a culture and have it resonate around the world.”

In winning the Globe for animated feature, Coco bested two additional studio CG features: Fox/Blue Sky’s Ferdinand, based on Munro Leaf’s children’s book, The Story of Ferdinand, about a non-violent bull (which, like Coco, had a second HFPA nomination, for original song); and DreamWorks Animation’s comedy The Boss Baby, based on Maria Frazee’s illustrated book about a baby and secret agent (voiced by Alec Baldwin).

Based on the young adult novel of the same name by Deborah Ellis, The Breadwinner follows an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban regime in Afghanistan during 2001, while Loving Vincent, made in Poland over five years, was fashioned with 65,000 individual frames of oil paintings created by 124 painters.
