‘Klaus’ Wins BAFTA Award For Best Animated Feature
Sergio Pablos’s Klaus has won the British Academy Film Award (BAFTA) for best animated feature. The awards are being presented this evening in London at the Royal Albert Hall.
The Netflix-produced feature was up against Walt Disney Animation Studios’s Frozen 2, Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 4, and Aardman Animation’s A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon.
It’s the second major win in a row for Klaus, which dominated last weekend at ASIFA-Hollywood’s Annie Awards, picking up seven awards including best animated feature.
