The British Academy of Film and Television Arts honours the very best in children’s media. The ceremony was hosted by British actor, writer and comedian Doc Brown.
Horrible Histories led the way in the nominations, with three nominations for the second year in a row. It was particularly recognised for its special episode on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. The gruesomely entertaining history show is nominated in the Comedy, Writing and Performer categories, with the latter for Tom Stourton’s portrayal of the Bard himself.
Feature Film nominations included Zootropolis, The Good Dinosaur, The Jungle Book and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The hugely popular intergalactic franchise also appeared in other categories, with Star Wars Arcade nominated in Interactive: Adapted and LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens nominated for Game.
And there was still enough time to take part in the mannequin challenge!
