Growing up in the 90s, Disney was pretty much a shoo-in to win Best Song at the Oscars. They had a crazy winning streak that encompassed The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, and Pocahontas. As Disney animation thrives in its third Golden Age with another Best Song nomination looking likely for their new film Moana, I thought I would take a look back at their other animated movies that won Oscars for Best Song.
Just as a side note, this is for fully animated films from Disney only. The studio did win Best Song for the live-action/animation hybrids Song of the South (“Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”) and Mary Poppins (“Chim Chim Cher-ee”) and Pixar picked up wins for Monsters, Inc. (“If I Didn’t Have You”) and Toy Story 3 (“We Belong Together”), but I’m only looking at films from Disney Animation.
