This morning on the news there is a lot of talk about the Oscars that are starting in a few hours. Lots of of talk about The King's Speech (amazing movie), about the chances of the Australian nominations in the big categories and what their chances are of winning (Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush and Jackie Weaver), but so far there hasn't been a lot of talk about the category that I really have my finger's crossed for.
I have been a big fan of Shaun Tan for a few years now, so when it was announced that his adaptation of his book, The Lost Thing, had been nominated for an Oscar, it was a very exciting moment! While I am interested in those categories I will cheer very loudly if the names that are called out for the Short Film (Animated) Oscar are Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann.
Woo-hoo! Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann won their category! So exciting!
Here's the trailer for The Lost Thing.
