The British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced the nominations today for the 2018 British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA).
The BAFTAs have three categories that are animation-related: animated feature, British short animation, and special visual effects.
In the feature category, the three nominees were Disney-Pixar’s Coco, Breakthru Films/Trademark Films’ Loving Vincent, and Rita Productions’ My Life as a Zucchini. The category is worth watching because unlike some other film awards, the BAFTAs do not rubber-stamp a Walt Disney Company animated feature as the winner every year. Last year, the BAFTAs recognized Kubo and the Two Strings as the best animated film, while The Lego Movie won the category in 2015.
