BAFTA's Children's Award Nominees Announced

This year's EA British Academy Children's Awards will take place on Sunday, November 30, 2008 to celebrate excellence in all art forms of the moving image for children -- in film, television, video games and online.

In animation, CHARLIE AND LOLA, ELIOT KID, SHAUN THE SHEEP and SKUNK FU! are nominated for best animation, and CHARLIE AND LOLA, LITTLE PRINCESS, PEPPA PIG and ROARY THE RACING CAR are nominated for best preschool animation.

DR. SEUSS' HORTON HEARS A WHO!, RATATOUILLE, STARDUST and WALL-E are nominated for best feature film.

The Awards are voted for by BAFTA members and industry experts but children have a voice in the BAFTA Kids' Vote. BAFTA has again partnered with CBBC on Me And My Movie, a filmmaking initiative inspiring children to tell their own stories.
