Shaun Wins a BAFTA!

Shaun the Sheep's latest TV adventures won a coveted BAFTA at a star-studded event in London last night! The British Academy Film and Television Awards - or BAFTAs, as they're more widely known - celebrate the best in British TV and film entertainment and have their own special ceremony for children's TV each year, covering cateorgies such as drama, comedy, factual and, of course, animation.

Shaun the Sheep was up against some stiff competition in the animation category, from the likes of Dennis the Menace & Gnasher and Strange Hill High, but managed to scoop the top spot, making it the second time Shaun the Sheep has won a BAFTA!

Other animation winners of the night included Disney film Frozen, which scopped the award for best film in 2014, as voted for by members of the public, while the LEGO Movie was selected by the academy panel as best feature film. The BAFTAs also cover children's games, with Minecraft and Mario Kart 8 both winning awards. CBBC favourites Dick and Dom won the Children's Presenter award, while 9-year-old actress Cherry Campbell, star of CBeebies show Katie Morag, became the youngest ever person to win a BAFTA.

This exciting news comes hot on the heels of the announcement of a 'Week of Shaun', including the release of some never-before-seen movie content, such as new movie posters, Vine videos and a Movie trailer!
