‘Zucchini,’ ‘Revolting Rhymes’ Top 1st Annual Emile Awards

The inaugural European Animation Awards were held Friday in Lille, France, with more than 1,000 people in attendance to toast the finest work on the continent. Out of the 16 categories, the most Emile Awards went to Swiss-French stop-motion feature My Life as a Zucchini (Ma Vie de Courgette), which scored Best Feature/Director (Claude Barras), Writing (screenplay by Céline Sciamma) and Soundtrack (music by Sophie Hunger).

U.K. TV special Revolting Rhymes and meditative France-Belgium-Japan feature The Red Turtle (La Tortue Rouge) also did well, scoring two Emiles each. Revolting Rhymes took Best Program/Director (Jan Lachauer, Jakob Schuh) and Character Animation in the TV/Broadcast section. The Red Turtle was recognized for Best Character Animation and Storyboard in a Feature Film.
