Just One Aussie In Chance for Oscar Win

We do so love to live vicariously on this island but who could not feel proud that Kirk Baxter, a film editor who studied in Sydney has been nominated for an Oscar at the 2012 Academy Awards.

Kirk and co-editor Angus Wall have been nominated for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".

The film stars Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara and Christopher Plummer (Plummer has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 'Beginners').

Baxter has two top films under his belt-The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Social Network and he previously was nominated for his editing of the film of the 2009 Academy Awards presentations.
