Take a seat, Sadness. It’s Joy’s night. That’s because Inside Out triumphed in a very competitive category (that also included Shaun the Sheep Movie and the truly outstanding Anomalisa) to take home the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature at this year’s Oscars. It’s the second Best Animated Feature win for director Pete Docter (2009’s Up was the first) and the eighth win for Pixar Animation Studios (the other six, for those keeping score at home, are Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Toy Story 3, and Brave).

The Academy Awards is one of Hollywood's biggest nights. Some people love to see the fashion, hear the acceptance speeches, and make predictions about who will take home an award. Others don't find this exciting at all, and aren't impressed by what the awards show has to offer.
