To celebrate the best of the best of animation, A113Animation is running a special "Best of the Last Ten Years (2001 - 2011)" A113Animation Awards. We ran an initial poll, to generate a longlist, and the two highest scoring films from that poll automatically advanced to the final shortlist, those films being WALL-E and Toy Story 3. We're now running four polls to narrow down the remaining contenders, the winning film from each poll group joins WALL-E and Toy Story 3 in the final. Now we know two of those films.
The polls for Groups 1 and 2 concluded today. Group 1, our Facebook poll, was won by Pixar's Up, only recently pulling away from Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away. Group 2, which was on the blog, on the right sidebar, was won by Finding Nemo, in what was essentially a two-horse race with Monsters, Inc. - Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit was the only other film to get a vote in Group 2!
So, the currently all-Pixar shortlist of nominees in the final stands like this, in order of votes received:
- Toy Story 3
- Finding Nemo
- TBD - Group 3
- TBD - Group 4
As you can see, we've still got two polls left to go! The polls for Groups 3 and 4 will be put up (3 on Facebook, 4 here on the blog) later today, and will run for two weeks, until 28th, when the final poll will be put up!
Keep your eyes glued to A113Animation for more updates!
UPDATE: 23:23 (GMT)
The polls for Group 3 (here) and Group 4 (check our right sidebar here on the blog) are now up. Have your say and make sure your favourite isn't left out of the final!
