Wallace And Gromit: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT has been nominated for three British Animation Awards.

The smash hit movie, which is also up for an Academy Award, leads nominations ahead of the ceremony in London next month (09MAR06).

Other films represented at the event are Oscar rivals THE CORPSE BRIDE, CREATURE COMFORTS and ANGRY KID - the latter are both created by Aardman Animations, the home of Wallace And Gromit.

But the 'claymation' duo will be hot favourites after scooping nine prizes at the Annies recently.
