Disney+ received its first Oscar win with Disney and Pixar’s “Soul”. Winning Oscars for “Best Animated Feature” and “Best Original Score” this makes Pixar’s 11th Best Animated Feature Film award and its third Oscar for the director and Pixar Chief Creative Officer, Pete Doctor.
Pixar’s “Soul” introduces Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22 (voice of Tina Fey), who doesn’t see why souls would want the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.
Soul won the following awards at the Oscars:
Best Animated Feature – Pete Docter, Kemp Powers, Dana Murray
Best Original Score – Jon Batiste, Atticus Ross, Trent Reznor
