Irish animation studio misses out on Academy Award

Kilkenny-based animation studio Cartoon Saloon missed out on an Oscar at last night’s Academy Awards.

The group’s film Wolfwalkers lost out to Pixar’s Soul in the Animated Feature category.

Nomadland won best picture.

Chloe Zhao has made history at the Academy Awards by becoming the first woman from an ethnically diverse community and only the second woman ever to win best director.

Accepting the prize she talked about what inspires her.

“I have always found goodness in the people I’ve met, everywhere I’ve gone in the world.

“So this is for anyone who had the faith and the courage to hold on to the goodness in themselves, and to hold on to the goodness in each other, no matter how difficult it is to do that.”
