Congrats to Tim and all involved on winning the Oscar for The Lost Thing! Just purchased off iTunes, looking forward to watching soon on a plane to Seattle…not to go see Tim, unfortunately…

I went to the screening of the Oscar-nominated animated shorts today – they were all great but The Lost Thing was just fantastic. Wonderfully narrated by Tim, visually stunning, made me smile and brought a tear to my eye. Really hope it wins. You should all download it from iTunes!
