Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse takes home an Oscar

Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) and Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) in Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation's SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE.

The Academy Awards were handed out on Sunday night, and our favorite web-slinger went home with one of the coveted statues.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse took home the Oscar for Best Animated Feature, a category that typically goes to Disney or its subsidiary Pixar. It was up against Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Mirai, and Ralph Breaks the Internet, so the usual players were in the mix.

While the other films were decent, there was never really any question that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was going to take home the win. It was the only film in the category receiving any real discussion of a win, and seemed to be the odds on favorite. The Academy is known to mess up some ‘sure things’ in the past, but this one definitely felt safe.
