Oscar win for Wallace and Gromit

Nick Park and Steve Box
It was a cracking night in Tinsel Town for the Brits as animated duo Wallace and Gromit won an Oscar.

They bagged the best animated feature film gong for The Curse of the Were Rabbit at the ceremony, which took place on Sunday night in Los Angeles.

As co-directors Nick Park and Steve Box accepted the statue they both quoted the film: "Cracking cheese Gromit!"

Rachel Weisz was Britain's other big winner, who took the best supporting actress award.

It's the fourth Oscar for Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park, but his first one for a full-length film.

"Someone once said if you make a bad film you make it alone, if you if you make a great film everyone made it with you," said Steve Box, while on stage with Park.

"We made a great film, guys."
