The movie got the “Best Animated Feature” award at the Academy Awards. A “feature” is a full length movie. The Academy Awards are sometimes called “The Oscars”. People who are in the movie business get to vote for the movies and the parts of movies they think are best. The ones that win get a statue called an “Oscar”. A song in the movie, called “Remember Me”, also won an Oscar for the best song.

Coco has won other awards, too. For example, it also won the best animated feature award at the Golden Globe Awards.
