GKIDS Puts up Four Pictures for Oscar and Annie Awards


From Up On Poppy Hill is one of four films from GKIDS aiming for multiple animated feature awards.

Animation distributor, GKIDS, announced Wednesday that it will have four feature films competing for the 2012 best animated feature Oscar and the 2012 Annie Awards. GKIDS is planning Academy-qualifying Los Angeles runs in November for From Up On Poppy Hill, Le Tableau, The Rabbi’s Cat and Zarafa.

The company has received three best animated feature Oscar nominations in the past three years with The Secret of Kells in 2010 and both A Cat in Paris and Chico & Rita in 2012, marking the first time an independent distributor has had two simultaneous nominations in the category. GKIDS also recently announced pickups of Ernest & Celestine from Studiocanal in France and A Letter to Momo from Production I.G in Japan.
