'Spirited Away' continues winning streak.
Hayao Miyazaki's critically acclaimed ''Spirited Away'' (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi) was named the year's best animated film by the International Press Academy and the Broadcast Film Critics Association, according to their respective organizations.
The film has already won the best animated film award from the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the New York Film Critics Circle last December.
''Spirited Away'' tells the story of Chihiro, a 10-year-old girl who becomes trapped in a world of spirits and gods, and must escape to rescue her parents from a spell that transformed them into pigs.
