And the Oscar goes to…The Lost Thing (Shaun Tan)

How wonderful that Shaun Tan has won the Oscar for The Lost Thing (Category: Best Short Animated Film). The award was shared with his British co-director Andrew Ruhemann.

There is an article about the award in today’s Sydney Morning Herald and a video available of the acceptance speech. I liked the part in the speech where Shaun commented on “the irony of being noticed for a film about not being noticed.”

This is one homepage that will need an update  – from Oscar nominee to winner

ABC News also has a piece with other links to earlier interviews on Artworks (Radio National) and ABC’s Articulate sites.

The School Library Journal also published an interesting interview with Shaun about his film last week.
