Oscar-nominated children's favourite Room On The Broom has swept the board at the British Animation Awards.

The Tv short, which missed out on the Short Film (Animated) prize at the Academy Awards last Sunday (02Mar14), saw off competition from Pirates! On an Adventure with Scientists and The Snowman and the Snowdog to win the coveted Best Long Form prize.

During the awards show in London on Friday (07Mar14), veteran actor Bill Nighy missed out on the Best Voice Performance trophy for his turn in The Hungry Corpse, losing to comedienne Morwenna Banks for Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom.

In the music video category, director Andrew Thomas Huang was honoured for his work on the promo for Before Your Very Eyes by Thom Yorke's supergroup Atoms for Peace.
