After the ceremony Waititi said he was stoked with the award, which came with a cash prize.

Boy carries on from the Oscar nominated short film (12 minutes), Two Cars, One Night, written and directed by Taika Waititi and released in 2003. That film was about two boys and a girl meeting in the carpark of a rural pub in Te Kaha, New Zealand.

What at first seems to be a relationship based on rivalry soon develops into a close friendship.

Boy carries on from this and delves into the “interesting” life of the characters of Two Cars, One Night.
