'Toy Story 4' took home the Critics' Choice Award for Best Animated Film on Sunday night. The all-time Disney classic vaulted over 'Abominable', 'Frozen II', 'How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World', 'I Lost My Body', and 'Missing Link'.  The news, however, garnered mixed reactions from fans. 

"What? Why?" tweeted a fan on the official page of the awards, and most fans seconded the thought. "How To Train Your Dragon OR Frozen 2 has been robbed! Honestly! I didn't like TS4 compared to 1,2, and 3! So sad! " said another. "Did you think it should've been frozen 2??" wrote a fan. 

For some, 'Abominable' deserved the award. "Abominable deserved it a thousand times more" tweeted a fan.  For some, it was a great choice. "Congratulations Ya'll and Best Wish to ALL the Toys!!" said a fan. "About Time," wrote another.  "Nostalgic choice" opined another fan. 

The film has grossed $1.073 billion worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing installment of the franchise, the sixth highest-grossing film of 2019. 'Toy Story 4' received positive reviews for its story, humor, emotion, score, animation, and performances. Rotten Tomatoes gave the feature a whopping approval rating of 97% based on 421 reviews, with an average rating of 8.37/10 with the critics' consensus reading, "Heartwarming, funny, and beautifully animated, Toy Story 4 manages the unlikely feat of extending – and perhaps concluding – a practically perfect animated saga."
