Thank You Speech:
Wow, this is quite surreal. Our film is about a creature that nobody pays any attention to, so this is wonderfully ironic. The award really goes to our producer, Sophie Byrne, the true champion of this project for the past 10 years. Alongside Andrew and our splendid animation team of Leo Baker and Tom Bryant. The Oscar also goes to John Kassab, Mike Yezerski, Adrian Medhurst, Tim Minchin, Screen Australia, and everybody whose supported us with such generosity and patience. Many thanks to our families and friends, to my wife Anari, [FOREIGN LANGUAGE], and to Perth and Melbourne this one is to you too. (Shaun Tan)
Thank you, a very quick one, just say I love my wife, Jennifer Nadel, who is out there and my business partner and great friend, Jonathan Battsek, and everybody at Passion Pictures. And this is dedicated to all lost things everywhere. Thank you
