The 7th A113Animation Awards Results - and a Farewell

The time has come to announce the winners of the 7th and last A113Animation Awards! The winners are announced below, and are in bold and gold.
As always, our personal tastes decide of the Awards, so it's rather a matter of favourite over best, even if it says 'Best' in the Award title.
There will be a short breakdown of the results after the list of winners; as well as a closing statement from William, Munir and me (Damien), since - as we announced last week - this is the end of the line for A113Animation.

But first, the results!

The 7th A113Animation Awards Nominations (and an Announcement)

Welcome to the 7th A113Animation Awards! We're here to celebrate our favourite animated films of 2017.

The criteria for participating have been made more flexible this time: as always, we will include movies that have been released in the UK during the past year - but we're also letting in animated films that have premiered in the US within the same period. We'll be explaining why at the end of this post.

We are hereby reminding you that the choices we make are based on our personal taste and on the films we were able to see so far (damn released dates) - which would explain why The Breadwinner isn't nominated in any category despite its critical success. That being said, and as usual for the A113Animation Awards, you can still support films that didn't make our 'Best Animated Feature Film' selection in 'The People's Favourite Animated Film Award'. Just vote for your favourite 2017 animated film in the poll below.

The nominees are presented in alphabetical order of the movie. And here we go!
