Last night Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won Best Animated Feature at the 2018 Golden Globes. Beating out Disney powerhouse films like The Incredibles 2 and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2, Spider-Verse pulled off an upset win that has been heralded across social media.

With its endearing story and unique visual style, Into the Spider-Verse gave the animated world a jolt by showcasing an original story and pushing the boundaries of animation by seamlessly mixing in comic book style and elements. The film is a huge success for Sony Animation as it gets closer to $300 million dollars worldwide on a $90 million dollar budget.

    It’s hard to call it an upset based on the critical acclaim, but definitely in terms of studios and stories, that was an amazing win (and well deserved)
