Shrek Wins Film Board
Best Animated Picture Award

(December 7, 2001 - by DreamWorks / PDI has much to celebrate after the respected National Board of Review named Shrek the "Best Animated Feature" of the year. The National Board of Review, which was formed in 1909, is considered the first respectable organization to provide a list of best movies.

While Shrek walked away with the best animation honors (beating Monsters, Inc. and several other animated movies) the Best Picture honor went to the live action Moulin Rouge. The board also put out its Top 10 of the year list. While no animated movies appeared in the list, the FX-filled A.I.: Artificial Intelligence was named the seventh best film of the year.

Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring was given special achievement recognition even though it didn't win any awards and didn't appear in the Board's top 10 movies of the year list. Fellowship of the Ring has earned rave reviews by several high-profile critics.

The National Board of Review is made up of educators and film historians. The awards program was formed in 1917.
