"Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio," a strikingly dark take on the beloved children's book about an exuberant living puppet and his elderly wood-carver father, won best animated feature at the Academy Awards on Sunday.

In an Oscars category usually dominated by lighter, family-friendly fare, Mexican director del Toro triumphed with his macabre reimagining of Pinocchio's adventures, now set in 1930s Italy.
