Oscars: 'Toy Story 3' wins long, 'The Lost Thing' wins short on animated front

Justin Timberlake confessed -- he's Banksy, the underground street artist whom everyone's been mad to identify. Ha ha. Not.

Animated short went to "The Lost Thing," a very entertaining, very moving short out of Australia (in case the accent during the acceptance speech wasn't a dead give-away). But seriously, if you get a chance, find a way to see this meditation on things that don't quite "fit" in this world, all told after an ordinary guy discovers a strange thing on the beach. Simply wonderful (though I have to say I had a soft spot for "The Gruffalo").  

That "Toy Story 3" won in the full-length feature animation is no surprise. The surprise would have been if this terrific film didn't win. As good as the others were, it is a remarkable feat that the third in the 'Toy Story' series proved to be the best of them all.
