‘Inside Out,’ ‘Edmond,’ ‘Star Wars’ Win Animation and VFX BAFTAs
Tonight in London, Pete Docter continued making the rounds to pick up every possible animation-related award for Inside Out, the Pixar smash hit that he directed.
Just one week after his film won 10 Annie Awards, Docter won the best animated feature at the 69th annual BAFTA Film Awards, England’s equivalent of the Academy Awards. The film was competing against Minions and Shaun the Sheep Movie.
In the British animated short category, Nina Gantz won the prize for her National Film and Television School graduation project, Edmond, which beat out fellow NFTS student Simon Cartwright and his film, Manoman, and animation legend Richard Williams’ Prologue.
In the special visual effects category, Star Wars: The Force Awakens took the honor. The award was shared by Chris Corbould, Roger Guyett, Paul Kavanagh, and Neal Scanlan.
