“Zootopia” (2016), the most recent Best Animated Feature winner at the Oscars, is also your favorite of the decade. The Disney film towered over its competition in a recent Gold Derby poll asking you to vote for your top Animated Feature winner of the 2010s, even defeating beloved properties like “Toy Story 3,” “Frozen” and “Inside Out.”
“Zootopia” earned 40% of the vote, an amazing total considering there were seven options so far this decade. “Toy Story 3” (2010) came in second place with an impressive 28%, followed by another Pixar film, “Inside Out” (2015), at 19%.
No other films came close to these three, with “Frozen” (2013) taking the fourth slot at 6%. “Rango” (2011) and “Big Hero 6” (2014) tied with 3% apiece, while “Brave” (2012) came in last place with just 1% of the vote. (See which animated film won our poll for the 2000s.)
Centering on a chipper rabbit who becomes a police officer and teams up with a sly fox, “Zootopia” also features undercurrents of race relations and police brutality, allowing it to resonate with today’s times. The film, directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, was a huge success not only at awards but at the box office. “Zootopia” earned $341 million in the U.S. and over $1 billion worldwide, making it one of the 30 highest grossing films of all time.
