Wallace And Gromit Creator's Award Accident

The creator of BAFTA-award winning animation WALLACE AND GROMIT is having to send his trophy away to be repaired - he broke the gong as soon as he was presented with it on Sunday (08Feb09) night.
Nick Park, the brains behind the beloved plasticine pair, stepped up to collect the Short Animation award for Wallace & Gromit: A Matter Of Loaf And Death at the ceremony in London at the weekend.
But as soon as he left the stage the award broke - and Park found himself laughing about the blunder with actor Christian Slater.
He says, "As soon as I got it off the stage I dropped it and it broke. I was talking to Christian Slater at the time and we had a bit of a joke that they don't make awards like they used to. It's got to go back for repairs."
