“Frozen” Scores Yet Another Win with BAFTA Award
The winners of the 2014 BAFTA film awards, the British equivalent of the Oscars, were announced today. Disney’s Frozen beat out Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 2 and Pixar’s Monsters University in the animated feature category; and Sleeping With The Fishes by Yousif Al-Khalifa, James Walker, and Sarah Woolner was named best British short animation ahead of I Am Tom Moody by Ainslie Henderson and Everything I Can See From Here by Bjorn-Erik Aschim, Sam Taylor, and Friederike Nicolaus.
It should also be noted that one of the biggest winners of the night was a film that consisted largely of animation. Gravity took the prizes for best British film, best director (Alfonso Cuarón), best cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki), best sound (Glenn Freemantle, Skip Lievsay, Christopher Benstead, Niv Adiri and Chris Munro), best original music (Steven Price) and best special visual effects (Tim Webber, Chris Lawrence, David Shirk, Neil Corbould and Nikki Penny).
