'Brave' wins best animated feature Oscar

"Brave," a Scottish-themed princess tale with a gender equality twist, won the best animated feature Oscar on Sunday, in the latest triumph for big-screen animation pioneers Pixar.

The movie beat fellow nominees "Frankenweenie" by Tim Burton, Disney's video game adventure "Wreck-It Ralph," as well as "ParaNorman" and "The Pirates! Band of Misfits."

"Brave" follows the adventures of impetuous Princess Merida, a red-haired princess trying to rescue her mother from a spell cast by an evil witch.
