Wallace and Gromit win BAFTA

At last night's Orange BAFTA Film Awards 2006, Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were Rabbit pulled a gobsmacked rabbit out of the hat by winning Best British Film! As far as I know, this is the first time an animated film has won the award.
Nick Park said: "This is just amazing. I was just so delighted to be nominated alongside all the proper films tonight, I never thought I'd be up here."
Proper films? Don't knock yourself, Nick. You've created a brilliant new artform in your Claymation, one that puts all that pretentious and untalented rubbish in "Modern Art" galleries to shame. Picasso, Duchamp, Hurst, Tracey Whatshername (Beaker?) eat your hearts out. This is real art.
