Oscars ole for Spain

A SPANISH animation is in the running for an Oscar after being nominated at this year’s awards.

Chico y Rita will be hoping to scoop the prestigious Best Animated Feature Film gong at the ceremony in Los Angeles on February 26.

The film – about a young piano player and a beautiful singer set in Cuba in 1948 – is produced by Javier Mariscal and previous Oscar winner Fernando Trueba.

Other Spanish representatives in the nominations include Alberto Iglesias for his Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy soundtrack, while Woody Allen’s Spanish-produced Midnight in Paris is up for four awards.
