Richard Hammond has been nominated for a Children's Bafta for the second year running.

The Top Gear presenter scooped the Presenter award at the EA British Academy Children's Awards last year for his science show Blast Lab and has been nominated again.

Meanwhile, Emma Thompson's Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang will compete against against animated films Fantastic Mr. Fox, Toy Story 3 and Up in the Feature Film category.

Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures is up for the Drama Children's BAFTA, battling against The Boy From Before, the story of a dispossessed boy who unknowingly befriends the ghost of a boy from the 1940's, Tracy Beaker Returns and Roy, about the animated son of a real life family settling in to his new school.

The awards will take place on Sunday November 28 at the London Hilton and will be hosted for the first time by popular children's presenter Barney Harwood, who previously won the Presenter BAFTA in 2007 for Smile.

Children are invited to have their own say in the awards, voting for their favourite Film, Television Programme, Website and Video Game.

Voting for the BAFTA Kids' Vote closes at 18.00 on Friday November 26. Last year more than 425,000 votes were received.
