The Long Goodbye wins Oscar for Best Live Action Short


From a longlist announcement back in December, through a whittled-down shortlist some weeks before the big night, The Long Goodbye has come out the other side of a memorable Academy Awards with a well-deserved Oscar for Best Live Action Short.

Director Aneil Karia & lead Riz Ahmed, co-creators of the film, were there on the night to pick up their shiny statues and deliver their acceptance speeches – graciously thanking editor Amanda James.

Needles to say, back home at Final Cut UK we’re giddy with excitement. We’d like to extend one more massive congratulations to our creative partners over at Somesuch and everyone we collaborated with on this powerful project.
