Despite John Travolta’s poor (or should I say just plain wrong?!) introduction of “Frozen” voice actor Idina Menzel’s performance, Disney exec’s couldn’t have been much happier last night.

The company’s animated feature “Frozen” not only picked up two Oscars but also crossed the $1 billion mark at the international box office on Sunday night.

The film’s Oscar win in the Best Animated Feature category marks Disney’s first ever triumph in the esteemed category. It also took out Best Original Song for “Let It Go”.

“Frozen” joins an exclusive group of Disney’s biggest hits on a list of Disney releases to make at least $1 billion. These are “Toy Story 3”, “Alice in Wonderland”, “Iron Man 3”, “Marvel’s The Avengers” and the second and fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies.

It’s also the second highest-grossing animation of all time internationally, behind Pixar’s “Toy Story 3”.

Impressive is the fact that “Frozen” has reached these milestones while not yet having opened in Japan. It will be interesting to see how the animation fares in Japan, perhaps it will overtake “Toy Story 3” to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time?
