Boyle native Paul Young’s studio Cartoon Saloon has just been nominated for an Academy award for a fourth time. The company’s short film ‘Late Afternoon’ is the studio’s latest production to get an Oscar nomination, and will vie for a Best Animated Short gong at the upcoming awards in Los Angeles.
Fellow Boyle native and Fine Gael Senator Frank Feighan offered his congratulations to Paul and his colleagues.
“This is more great news for Cartoon Saloon, the animation studio co-founded by Boyle native Paul, who is the company’s CEO.
“I wish to warmly congratulate Paul and his company on this latest Oscar nomination; a fourth nomination which is an incredible achievement. Kilkenny-based Cartoon Saloon is already a three-time Academy Award, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Emmy nominated animation studio.
“Paul and his company have once again put Ireland on the world stage thanks to this latest Academy Award nomination.
“I wish Paul and the Cartoon Saloon team the very best of luck at the upcoming Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles at the end of February,” he said.
