Coco was possibly my favorite film of 2017, and that is saying a lot because I saw a lot of movies! It’s visually stunning and gorgeously animated and tells a compelling story of a boy named Miguel who visits the world of the dead. Coco won Best Edited Animated at the American Cinema Editors’ Eddie Awards, and won Outstanding Animated Character in an Animated Feature. Coco; Hèctor the VES Awards.
