'Urs' on Oscar Shortlist 2011

has just made it into the final 10 films which will compete for the
83rd Academy Awards® in the Category "Best animated Short"
What an honor for me and my team!

the 10 shortlisted films are:
"The Cow Who Wanted to Be a Hamburger" (Bill Plympton) Bill Plympton Studio
"Coyote Falls" (Matthew O'Callaghan, Sam Register) Warner Bros. Animation
"Day & Night" (Teddy Newton) Pixar
"The Gruffalo" (Jakob Schuh, Max Lang) Magic Light Studios
"Let's Pollute" (Geefwee Boedoe)
"The Lost Thing" (Shaun Tan, Andrew Ruhemann) Passion Pictures Australia
"Madagascar, Carnet de Voyage" (Bastien Dubois) Sacrebleu Prods.
"Sensology" (Michel Gagne) Gagne Intl.
"The Silence Beneath the Bark" (Joanna Lurie) Lardux Films
"Urs" (Moritz Mayerhofer) Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg

I'm more than excited! I'm crossing my fingers for all filmmakers who made it to the shortlist. Unfortunately just 3-5 films get a Nomination. There are brilliant films in this shortlist and it would be just fair to have 10 films nominated - Just like "Best Film" :)

The 83rd Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater

Cross your fingers for 'Urs'!! I'll need all I can have :)
