Ang Lee’s tale of survival at sea beats three animated features to win best film.
BAFTA announced the winners of the British Academy Children’s Awards at a ceremony in London last night.
In the Feature Film category Brave, Paranorman and Wreck-It Ralph were all beaten by Life of Pi, the critically acclaimed box-office hit adapted from the best-selling novel.
The results were also announced for the BAFTA Kids’ Vote. Hundreds of thousands of votes were cast by 7-14 year-olds who had their say in a nationwide poll to choose their favourite film, television programme, website and game.
The winners included Despicable Me 2, which beat the likes of Monsters University, Twilight and The Hobbit to win best feature film; and game Despicable Me: Minion Rush, which proved more popular than entries including Angry Birds Star Wars and Lego Lord of the Rings.
Best comedy in the main competition was won by BBC series Horrible Histories, whose creative team are making a comedy film about William Shakespeare titled Bill.
