The Queen City received a shout out Sunday night at the 87th Academy Awards when a Cincinnati native accepted the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.

Patrick Osborne, who grew up on the West Side and graduated in 1999 from St. Xavier High School, won for the Disney-produced film ‘Feast.'

“To my mom and dad, I love you and everybody back in Cincinnati watching right now,” Osborne ended his acceptance speech by saying.

Osborne directed the 6-minute film that follows the relationship between a Boston Terrier named Winston and his owner James. It debuted in theaters last summer as an intro to ‘Big Hero 6.'

This is the second Academy Award-winning film Osborne's been involved with. He was animation supervisor for “Paperman,” which took home the Best Short Film Oscar in 2013.

“Regardless of where it lands, this year's shorts nominees are wonderful. It's been a pleasure viewing and meeting the filmmakers!” Osborne tweeted before the start of the awards show began. He later took to social media again for a celebratory selfie holding his golden statue along with ‘Feast' producer Kristina Reed.
