 UPDATED:  "Let It Go" has won Best Song and "Frozen" Best Animated Feature at the Oscars. During the melody accepting the Oscar for "Let It Go," the two writers said, "Let's do Frozen 2...." 

Over the March 1-2 weekend, "Frozen" officially passed the $1 billion dollar mark for its worldwide gross putting the animated film among a select group of films that have reached the coveted financial success on its initial theatrical run. In the U.S. the film remained in the Top Ten with close to $3 million dollars for its boxoffice take on Oscar weekend. 

Anna and Elsa continue dashing through the snow and ice on their way to a $1 billion dollar worldwide gross for “Frozen.”  The Disney Animation film continued strong in the US and internationally in its 15th week of release.

“Frozen” on Saturday, Feb. 22, took the award for animated picture sound mixing at the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Awards. (“Gravity” grabbed best live action.)

The Disney sisterhood classic has passed the $980 million mark worldwide, according to Deadline and Box Office Mojo. Since the film has yet to open in anime obsessed Japan, the polar vortex will now certainly hit the 1B mark.

Oscar comes calling March 2. The “Let it Go” Disney signature song has a nomination, along with the film itself. A win would be the first for Disney Animation, since the category was initiated in 2001. Pixar has dominated.

The soundtrack has gone platinum and a Broadway adaptation is in the works.

Hopefully the Snow Queen will get her Oscar and she will lift the extended polar plunges that have chilled the United States.
