|First the BAFTAs, then the Oscars|
Award season is almost upon us. Every year in December a swelling tide of BAFTA DVDs and screeners arrives by post, a satisfyingly large heap of swag that makes me very popular at my in-laws, and makes Santa himself look like Uncle Scrooge.
When I was a kid we had to wait four years for a new Disney film to come out. This year the number of quality animated features vying for an award for Best Animated Feature is bigger than ever.
Some of the big contenders are:
- Madagascar 3
- Hotel Transylvania
- Rise of the Guardians
- Wreck-it Ralph
- Ice Age 4
- A Cat in Paris
- The Lorax
