'Frozen' wins best animated film Golden Globe

Disney's musical fairy tale adaptation "Frozen" won the Golden Globe for best animated film on Sunday, beating "The Croods" and "Despicable Me 2."

The studio's 53rd feature-length film, released in the United States for the Thanksgiving holiday in November, is based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen" -- even if it takes substantial liberties with plot and characters.

With a budget of $150 million, it grossed over $67 million to top the box office in its North America debut weekend, and returned to the top spot last week.

The movie brought to fruition a project which was on Walt Disney's wish list, 25 years after Disney's last Andersen adaptation, "The Little Mermaid."
