A winning night for Pixar’s ‘Soul’

Producer Dana Murray and Director Pete Docter with their Academy Awards for Soul

Pixar’s animated feature film Soul picked up awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score at this year’s 93rd Academy Awards. Director Pete Docter and producer Dana Murray — both Piedmonters — attended the event with their spouses, Amanda Docter and David Schaeffer. The ceremony was televised from Union Station in Los Angeles.

This is Murray’s first Oscar. Docter has won three — his films Up (2009) and Inside Out (2016) both won Best Animated Feature Film awards.
