Hollywood Film Awards to Honor Rise of the Guardians

Even though DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians doesn’t open until the 21st of November, it is already poised to make an apparance in the upcoming 16th annual Hollywood Film Awards. The Peter Ramsey-directed CG animated film will be presented with the Hollywood Animation Award during the gala ceremony on October 22, at the Beverly Hilton. This seems like good news for Paramount, as the previous award recipients have gone on to win the Best Animated Features Oscar, including: Ratatouille (2007), Wall-E (2008), Up (2009), Toy Story 3 (2010) and Rango (2011).

Based on the Guardians of Childhood book series by William Joyce, Rise of the Guardians focuses on a secret society of legendary childhood heroes (Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost and the Sandman) who must band together in order to stop an evil plot hatched by the Boogey Man.

It is a great pleasure to recognize Rise of the Guardians as the recipient of our animation award,” said Carlos de Abreu, the founder and executive director of the Hollywood Film Festival. “This piece of avant-garde animation style surely will be another classic for generations to come.”
