LOS ANGELES —

Pixar's Scottish adventure "Brave" has won the Academy Award for best animated feature film.

The win extends Pixar's domination of the category, marking its seventh win since the award was first handed out in 2002. "Brave," Pixar's first film with a female protagonist, didn't garner the kind of critical or popular support that movies like "WALL-E" and "Up" did.

But "Brave" still managed to win over Walt Disney's arcade game fantasy "Wreck-It Ralph," which many expected to take the award. Either way was a victory for Disney, which bought Pixar in 2006.

The other nominees Sunday night were Tim Burton's Mary Shelley homage "Frankenweenie," the stop-motion ghost story "ParaNorman," and the stop-motion sea voyage "The Pirates! Band of Misfits."

The 85th Academy Awards are airing live from the Dolby Theatre.
