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.
