“The Oscars came to Kilkenny for one night only on Sunday 25th April. Following strict Covid guidelines and multiple Covid tests over the weekend a skeleton operations crew from Cartoon Saloon along with the 3 nominees and their partners came together at the Rivercourt Hotel to take part in the 93rd Academy Awards.
Unfortunately it wasn’t 5th time lucky for the studio at this year’s Oscars however WolfWalkers has been included in almost 100 different awards since its release last year, with 31 wins across various categories involved in making an animated feature including editing, voice acting, script and music composition so the WolfWalkers team can hold their heads high.
Kilkenny was well represented on the night with Folkster providing the beautiful dresses for Liselott, Asia and Yvonne and Lamber De Bie supplied the flowers that adorned the set. Yvonne Maher and Elaine Murphy took care of hair and makeup and The RiverCourt hotel provided the location for the broadcast set up against the backdrop of the Office of Public Works, Kilkenny Castle who worked closely with the Cartoon Saloon team to make sure it was lit up on the night for everyone tuning in to see.”
