Neil Gaiman's Sunday morning

I slept through this when it aired this past Sunday, in anticipation of a possible (but by his own admission unlikely) Oscar win for Neil for CORALINE, a film I thoroughly enjoyed.
If, like me, Sunday morning is sleepy time for you, here's what you/we missed.

While bemused by The Strangeness of It All, the interviewer managed to  transcend the usual Muggle sort of attitude in mainstream reporting of SF/fantasy events and to recognize the innate quality of Neil's writing.
I've thought for some time now about the potential for a Gaiman film fest:
A Short Film About John Bolton
Princess Mononoke (Gaiman translation)
I'm sure there's something I'm overlooking, but I hope Neil will forgive.
