Well, "Frozen" had a very good weekend. Not only did it score two Academy Awards on Sunday, for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song ("Let It Go"), but it also crossed the $1 billion dollar mark in worldwide box office.

This makes it the biggest non-sequel animated film ever released and the second biggest animated film of all time globally. It has so far raked in an estimated $388.8 million at the domestic box office.

Check out the "Frozen" acceptance speech for Best Original Song, plus John Travolta's bizarre butchering of Idina Menzel's name before she performed "Let It Go" at the Oscars, here.
