Ozzy Osbourne Feeling Sort Of Sheepish (1/30/2006)

Organizers of the British Animation Awards (BAA) are urging people to vote for their favourite animation. A shortlist of animated films, music videos and commercials are being showcased at 20 independent cinemas around the UK.

The winners of the Public Choice award will be honoured at the British Animation Awards in London on 9 March.

Rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been transformed into an animated sheep for the ceremony. The former Black Sabbath frontman has been turned into a sheep, complete with trademark blue-tinted glasses, for the award's title sequence.

It was created by Birmingham-based animation studio The Character Shop.

Other categories in the awards include best animated special, children's series, comedy, commercial, music video and short film.

Music video nominees include the animation for the Gorillaz single Feel Good Inc.

Jayne Pilling, BAA director, said: "The Public Choice award highlights and celebrates the astonishing wealth of animation talent to be found in Britain across all sections of this highly diverse industry encompassing short films, commercials and music videos."
