The Lost Thing wins a 2011 Oscar for Best Short Animated Film

A few posts back, we mentioned that The Lost Thing—an animated film based on Shaun Tan’s book—was nominated for an Oscar. The very exciting news today is that it won the Oscar for Best Short Animated Film!

Hooray! Hooray!

If you haven’t already checked out the trailer, you can find it over on The Lost Thing‘s own website. (Due to the win, there are a lot of visitors there today, so make sure you check again later if you’re finding it slow to load!)
