Hollywood Movie Awards honors 'Rise of the Guardians' as best animated film

The animated film "Rise of the Guardians" was honored with the Hollywood Animation Award at the 16th Annual Hollywood 

Film Awards Gala presented by The Los Angeles Times held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on October 22, 2012 in Beverly 

Hills, California.


Directed by Peter Ramsey and written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (“Rabbit Hole”), “Rise of the Guardians” 

is based on the highly acclaimed series of children’s books by William Joyce. Joyce, who won an Oscar last year for his 

animated short “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,” was named by Newsweek as “one of the top 100 people 

to watch in the new millennium. “Rise of the Guardians” stars the voice talents of Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, 

Isla Fisher and Jude Law. Produced by Christina Steinberg and Nancy Bernstein and executive produced by Guillermo del 

Toro, Michael Siegel, and William Joyce, the DreamWorks Animation feature film will be released by Paramount Pictures on 

November 2012. 


Said Bill Damaschke, Chief Creative Officer at DreamWorks Animation, “This award is a testament to the vision and 

dedication of our director Peter Ramsey and our producers Christina Steinberg and Nancy Bernstein, who saw in William 

Joyce’s beautifully written books a truly magical world that he was able to bring to life with the help of David Lindsay-

Abaire’s wonderful screenplay and, of course, the outstanding work by his entire filmmaking team. We could not be more 

proud of the movie, or this recognition, and we thank Carlos and the Hollywood Film Awards for this great honor.”
