Australian Graphic Novelist and Illustrator Nominated for an Oscar

The wonderful Shaun Tan, Australian illustrator and graphic novelist, has been nominated for An Oscar for Best Short Film (Animated). The nominated film is called The Lost Thing and is based on his picture book of the same name. We introduced the film in a previous post. All we can say to Shaun is a big hearty CONGRATULATIONS! We'll be watching on the night and cheering from our lounges. The Oscars screen on Sunday 27 February 2011 (US time).

To read what the major papers and Australian media had to say go to: SBS, OnePerth, The Australian and the Sydney Morning Herald. In the meantime, here's another look at the trailer.
