Give it up for the Canucks, Norwegians and Aussies. Torill Kove's The Danish Poet took the Academy Award for best animated short film, and George Miller's Happy Feet got a statuette for best animated feature. Congratulations all around, especially for the heartfelt and gracious acceptance speeches. (Now, if only the Academy would recognize that grace and stop introducing the awards with cutesy animated bits and lame visual puns. How about it, folks?)

Labels: , ,

Agreed on nixing the animated bits. they're gonna have to if some anime flick. (Major Kusanagi sitting in the bleachers? I don't think so.)

I'm shocked Happy Feet won, though. I honestly believed its darkness would scare most Oscar voters away. Then again, An Inconvenient Truth won for Best Doc. Maybe voters decided to support the socially conscious film this year.
