The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is an independent charity event that supports, promotes, and develops art forms involving moving images: film, television, and video games. The BAFTA awards are held every year in London, England and awards are handed out for various categories. Unfortunately, Nintendo did not come away with any wins in any category this year.
What is particularly noteworthy is that despite 3DS games such as A Link Between Worlds, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf winning multiple awards from various media outlets over the past few months, not a single 3DS game was put up as a nominee for the “Mobile & Handhelds” category. Instead, Tearaway on the PS Vita came away with the win in that category. Despite that oddity, Super Mario 3D World was nominated for the Best Game, Multiplayer, Original Music, and Family categories, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf was also nominated for the Family category.
Nonetheless, Nintendo failed to win an award at BAFTA for the second year in a row. You can check out the full list of nominees and winners on BAFTA’s website here. As always, feel free to voice your thoughts in the comments below.
