On a night where Hollywood touted and awarded environmental awareness, Warner Brothers’ Happy Feet fit the theme better than Pixar’s gas-guzzling Cars to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Cars also lost out to another environmental film, Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, for Best Song. Torill Kove’s The Danish Poet took the award for Best Animated Short. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest won for Best Visual Effects.
