"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)."
