In the film, Murgua voiced the elderly Mam Coco, who is seen crossing over to the land of the dead during the Mexican holiday Da de los Muertos. Coco won two Academy Awards, one for best animated feature and one for best original song, which Murgua sings at the film's end in a duet with his great-grandson. Before her role in the Oscar-winning animated film, Murgua was well-known in Mexico and played villains in more than 100 roles that spanned stage, film and television over seven decades. Her first acting role was in the play Trial By Fire in 1954. She won the best supporting actress award at the Mexico's most prestigious acting awards in 1979 and 1986 for her performance in La Reina de la Noche, a film about a cabaret artist who came to Mexico after leaving Nazi Germany. She was nominated for the best supporting actress award three times, and had been nominated five times for the best actress award. Disney/Pixar/Kobal/Rex

Murgua was one of the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, when the country's film industry blossomed in the 1940s and 50s. Her last role was in the series José José: ElPrncipe de la Cancin. In April, Murgua accepted the Ingmar Bergman chair medal from the National University of Mexico for her contributions to the industry. I found this career through luck, and I am very happy.
