Best Christmas Movies Ever: Round 4. Animation!

Welcome to Round 4 of the Ultimate Christmas Movies List. LWKS is on a mission to find the Best Christmas Movie of all time and we want you to help us!

You've had your say on Christmas Comedy, Romance Movies and even Christmas Action Movies in rounds 1, 2 and 3 and we’ve already got a shortlist full of absolute Christmas crackers with Home Alone, Love Actually and Die Hard (obviously!) taking the top spots in their respective categories.

Round 4 is the Animation round. We couldn’t possibly ignore animations at this time of year. Not only are they super-important Christmas holiday child-care tools for every busy parent, but there are some truly moving stories for all ages and ground-breaking filmmaking techniques in the mix too. 

Scroll through our shortlist of the best animated Christmas movies of all time, and let us know which one you think tops the list! Think we’ve missed something? Well, you can let us know that too!

Winners so far:

Round 1. Comedy: Home Alone & Elf

Round 2. Romance: Love Actually & You've Got Mail

Round 3. Action: Die Hard & Gremlins
