Arthur Christ­mas

Aard­man Ani­ma­tions’ “Arthur Christ­mas” is one of 15 movies named Fri­day on the longlist for this year’s Orange British Acad­emy Film Award for Out­stand­ing British Film.

In addi­tion, Arthur Christ­mas is the only ani­mated film on the 15-movie long list for Orig­i­nal Screenplay.

Appear­ing on the longlist does not con­sti­tute a nomination.

The Adven­tures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Uni­corn is on the longlists for Adapted Screen­play, Spe­cial Visual Effects, Sound and Orig­i­nal Music.

The Ani­mated Film longlist includes The Adven­tures of Tintin: The Secret of the Uni­corn, Arthur Christ­mas, Gnomeo & Juliet, Puss In Bootsand Rango.

The longlists are the result of Round One vot­ing by mem­bers of the Acad­emy. With 285 films entered this year, the first round of vot­ing reduced the list of eli­gi­ble films to 15 in each cat­e­gory. Round Two vot­ing, which opened Fri­day, will reduce these 15 con­tenders down to five nom­i­na­tions in each category.

Nom­i­na­tions in all cat­e­gories will be announced Tues­day, Jan­u­ary 17. Win­ners will be announced at the Orange British Acad­emy Film Awards on Sun­day, Feb­ru­ary 12.
