BBC’s ‘Wolfblood’ Leads BAFTA Kids’ Awards Noms

BBC's 'Wolfblood' Leads BAFTA Kids' Awards

'The Amazing World of Gumball' picks up noms for Cartoon Network

The BBC’s supernatural drama “Wolfblood” leads the race for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ Children’s Awards with four nods.

The kids’ kudofest, which honors the best in children’s media, will be held on Nov. 24 at the Hilton, Park Lane, London. This year’s host is TV presenter Jake Humphrey.

Tyke toon “Peppa Pig” follows a close second with three nominations for pre-school animation and writer as well as Multiplatform for the “Peppa Pig’s Holiday” mobile app.

Among the programs with double nominations are “The Amazing World of Gumball,” which features in the writer and animation categories; “Hackertime,” for comedy and performer for Phil Fletcher as “Hacker the Dog”; “Stepping Up,” with nominations in the drama and writer categories; “Horrible Histories,” with a nomination in the comedy category and one for its spin-off program “Horrible Histories: Gory Games in Entertainment”; and “Something Special,” picking up nominations in pre-school live action and presenter for Justin Fletcher.

Fletcher, BAFTA’s most-awarded children’s presenter, is double-nominated this year, as he picks up a second nomination in the performer category for “Justin’s House.” Fletcher is joined in that category by Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes, who are nominated together for “Sam and Mark’s Big Friday Wind-Up,” which also receives a nomination in entertainment.

Completing the presenter category are “Blue Peter’s” Barney Harwood and “Show Me Show Me’s” Chris Jarvis, who receives his first BAFTA nomination this year.

Nintendo receives three nominations in the game category for “Animal Crossing New Leaf,” “Lego City Undercover” and “Luigi’s Mansion 2,” with Activision’s “Skylanders Giants” completing the nominations.

“Brave,” “Life of Pi,” “ParaNorman” and “Wreck-it Ralph” each receive a nomination in the feature film category.

In addition, the BAFTA Kids’ Vote launches today, in which children aged between seven and 14 years have their say in a nationwide poll to choose their favorite film, television program, website and game.

Over half a million votes were cast in 2012. Among the 10 films on the film shortlist, the major franchises go head-to-head with “Despicable Me 2,” “Monsters University,” “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” all included. In television, the 2011 and 2012 winner “Good Luck Charlie” will have to stave off the competition from “The Amazing World of Gumball,” “Jessie” and “Phineas and Ferb,” who were all shortlisted last year as well.
