NEW YORK (AP) - The Associated Press entertainer of the year isn't a singer or actor. It's an animated film -- and it opened before the end of last year.

If you have children, or you know someone who does, you might not be surprised to learn that "Frozen" was the choice of Associated Press members and subscribers. It won 12 votes, beating Taylor Swift with 8 and Matthew McConaughey and Jimmy Fallon, who were tied for third with 7 votes each.

"Frozen" has earned Disney more than $1.27 billion at the box office worldwide, becoming the most successful animated movie of all time. Its signature song, "Let It Go," won an Oscar, and a national touring live version on ice has been a huge draw.

The lines of girls wearing sparkly dresses waiting for a chance to see Elsa and Anna at Disneyland are staggering.
