GEICO  Unskippable has officially snagged TWO Gold Lions, TWO Silver Lions and FOUR Bronze Lions, for a total of EIGHT Lions—and it’s still shortlisted across SIX categories, including Viral, Branded Content and Entertainment, Online Film and Film Craft across the Script, Direction and Casting categories. Huge congrats to Caleb Hepler, Terri Timely at Park Pictures and The Martin Agency.

James Forbes-Robertson chases horizons with Citizen Watch, Tristan Patterson and W+K Amsterdam—winning both a Gold and a Silver Lion.

While James chases horizons, Martin Leroy’s collaboration with Publicis and Koen Mortier for BNP Paribas Fortis also keeps moving forward with TV & Cinema Film and Film Craft listings.

Nike’s Last Game is also scoring left and right with three shortlists including Online Film and Film Craft for both Direction and Animation. Congrats Paul, W+K Portland and Passion Pictures!

Speaking of goals, Matthew Wood’s collaboration with Henry Alex Rubin and DDB for McDonald’s Gol is aiming for the Viral category, while McDonald’s Signs with Dave Cea and Leo Burnett has its eye on the TV & Cinema category.

Meanwhile, Matthew’s collaboration with DDB Argentina and Rodrigo Garcia Saiz, The Man and the Dog, has captured hearts and is poised to capture the TV & Cinema Film category for Fundraising, Donations & Appeals.

Nissan’s With Dad with Russell Icke, Lance Acord and TBWA\Chiat\Day homes in on a Film Craft award while Gatorade’s 50 celebrates 50 years in the Online Film category with The Malloys, TBWA\Chiat\Day and Charlie.

And, of course, Mark Burnett, 303 Lowe, Good Oil Films and Captain Risky are kickin’ it and rippin’ it in the TV & Cinema Film category.

Congrats and best of luck to you all—and stay tuned for updates!
