‘The Lost Thing’ has won the Oscar for animated short film. Directed by Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann, the short film tells the story of a boy who finds a misshapen creature on a beach and tries to find a home for it. The movie is based on a children’s picture book by Tan.

‘The Lost Thing’ was competing against ‘The Gruffalo,’ ‘Let’s Pollute,’ ‘Day & Night’ and ‘Madagascar, carnet de voyage (Madagascar, a Journey Diary).’
