Meet Patrick Osborne, Our Other Oscar Winner
March 4, 2013
Oscar-winner Patrick Osborne and I exchanged emails about his career at the Walt Disney Animation Studio, where he was the animation supervisor on “Paperman,” which won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. It was the first animated short Oscar for Disney Animation Studio since 1969. (George Clooney also won his second Oscar that night, as producer for best motion picture “Argo.”) Osborne attended Our Lady of Visitation grade school and St. Xavier High School (class of ’99) before studying at the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Fla. He’s the son of Vicky and Tom Osborne, an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Cincinnati.
