Disney’s Frozen has been named the top movie of the year at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 100th annual meeting in Beverly Hills, California, the Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The Hollywood Reporter is the world’s oldest film publication.
Its first issue, which was printed in 1888, ran for more than a year and featured a cover story on the year’s most important film, including “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Jungle Book.”
The issue also ran an essay on the importance of music and the art of film.
The annual meeting was held at the Sheraton Beverly Hills Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, California.
The event was attended by more than 250 journalists from more than 40 countries, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Associated Press, CNN, Reuters, The Financial Times, ABC News, NBC News, CNN International, BBC News, Fox News, The BBC, CNN-IBN, CNNgo and CNN-Vault.
The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
Frozen is Disney’s latest film, which is also based on the popular book series by Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
The animated film has been hailed as a critical and commercial success, with a global box office of more than $5.4 billion, making it the most successful animated film in the world.
Festivalgoers will be able to view the film in theaters on November 15 and 17.
Disney released the film’s first trailer last week.
