Animated duo Wallace and Gromit could score a Bafta double after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit earned a best film nomination in the children's awards.

The movie is up against The Lion, the Witch And the Wardrobe, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

The latest Wallace and Gromit adventure won best British film at the main Bafta awards earlier this year.

It is also one of 10 films shortlisted for the Bafta Kids' Vote award.

The other three best film nominees are also shortlisted, along with Superman Returns, Nanny McPhee, Chicken Little, Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, Over the Hedge and Cars.

Under-16s will vote for the winner in the only "public award" category.

In the entertainment category, the nominees are Tricky TV, The Basil Brush Show, Raven and Top of the Pops Reloaded.

Tricky TV host Stephen Mulhern earns a best presenter nomination, alongside his Holly & Stephen's Saturday Showdown co-host Holly Willoughby, Newsround's Lizo Mzimba and Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes from Level Up.

Channel of the year nominees are CBBC, CBeebies, Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.

Competing for the best drama honour are The Giblet Boys, Johnny and the Bomb, Barking! and Scene: Spit Game.

The Giblet Boys' Nick Fisher and Johnny and the Bomb's Peter Tabern are nominated in the best writer category, along with Dave Ingham (Charlie and Lola) and Jamie Rix (Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids).

Serious Amazon, Blue Peter Book Awards, The Really Wild Show and Michaela's Wild Challenge are the contenders in the factual category.

The awards ceremony takes place on 26 November at the London Hilton in Park Lane, and is hosted by children's presenter Reggie Yates.
