Five Animated Features Make the BAFTA List

The long list of nominees for this year’s Orange British Academy Film Awards were revealed yesterday. The BAFTA Animated Feature category includes The Adventures of Tintin, Arthur Christmas, Gnomeo and Juliet, Puss in Boots and Rango. It’s interesting to note that the Brits opted for Arthur Christmas and Gnomeo and Juliet instead of Cars 2 and Kung Fu Panda 2, which have made the cut in other races.
