See you!

0:00:000:00:00

Morning all, I'm Martin

with all the news just for you.

0:00:110:00:15

First, six-year-old Maisie

from Swindon has just found out

0:00:150:00:20

the film she stars in has

won an Oscar.

0:00:200:00:23

She's over in LA in America

with all the stars!

0:00:230:00:25

Maisie is deaf, the same

as the character she plays.

0:00:250:00:29

Newsround is with her in Hollywood.

0:00:290:00:33

The Silent Child by Rachel Shenton!

0:00:330:00:36

This was the moment the team

behind the film found out

0:00:360:00:39

they'd won an Oscar!

0:00:390:00:45

I made a promise to our six-year-old

lead actress that I would find the

0:00:450:00:50

speech and my hands are shaking so I

apologise.

0:00:500:00:55

So who is the six-year-old

apologise.

0:00:550:01:00

It's a story so happy it could have

been the plot of a Hollywood movie.

0:01:000:01:03

Maisie hadn't even acted before,

then her parents were told

0:01:030:01:06

about the film looking for deaf

children to star in it.

0:01:060:01:09

And here are the nominees for Best

live action Short film...

0:01:220:01:27

This is the moment the film team

found out they'd been

0:01:270:01:29

nominated for an Oscar.

0:01:290:01:34

My Nephew Emmitt, The Silent

Child...

0:01:340:01:41

And so, Maisie, along

with her cuddly toy,

0:01:430:01:45

made her way to LA to take her place

as part of Hollywood history.

0:01:450:01:53

When she got there she made sure

she did all the important things.

0:01:530:01:58

And last night was the big night.

0:01:580:02:03

So how are they feeling

about the big win?

0:02:030:02:09

The film's writer, Rachel Shenton,

says it's amazing to win,

0:02:090:02:13

and she's so proud of the team

behind the film for bringing

0:02:130:02:16

the topic of deafness

to a huge audience.

0:02:160:02:19

She told us she's surprised Maisie

managed to stay awake

0:02:190:02:21

for the announcement

because the ceremony was so late!

0:02:210:02:24

But that she was shouting

with excitement.

0:02:240:02:28

What a fantastic achievement!

0:02:280:02:32

Let's just hope Maisie

wasn't too tired to join

0:02:320:02:34

in with the celebrations.

0:02:340:02:38

Next, snow has caused

problems across the UK,

0:02:380:02:40

but it's a huge problem for those

without homes, living

0:02:400:02:43

on the streets.

0:02:430:02:46

Newsround caught up with some

students who wanted to do something

0:02:460:02:48

to help the homeless.

0:02:480:02:49

Ladies first.

0:02:490:02:50

OK.

0:02:500:02:52

I'm supposed to go first

and you said, "Ladies..."

0:02:520:02:54

Yeah, ladies first, on about myself!

0:02:540:02:55

Oh.

0:02:550:02:58

They're having a mass sleep out

in solidarity for young people

0:02:580:03:01

who find themselves homeless.

0:03:010:03:04

We can't replicate what homeless

people have to go through,

0:03:040:03:07

because nobody should have to go

through that, but we're

0:03:070:03:09

sleeping on the floor

and the heating is off,

0:03:090:03:13

and phones, no, MP3 players,

none of that, at all.

0:03:130:03:19

I think the most challenging thing

that will happen tonight is sleeping

0:03:190:03:22

on the ground because most people,

like me, I'm used

0:03:220:03:24

to sleeping on a bed.

0:03:240:03:26

I think the most challenging thing

for me is trying to keep warm.

0:03:260:03:29

Tonight, the thing that I'm

going to miss the most is my family,

0:03:290:03:32

because I usually have them there.

0:03:320:03:36

I think the students will get

a really small flavour of what it

0:03:360:03:39

might be like to sleep

without their home comforts,

0:03:390:03:41

put themselves in the shoes

of someone who's experiencing life

0:03:410:03:43

on the streets.

0:03:430:03:45

I can't wait until the morning

because I'm not going to wake

0:03:450:03:48

up, it's too early,

and it's the weekend.

0:03:480:03:55

On a scale of one to ten, I was one.

0:04:000:04:03

It was awful, freezing

cold, I was hungry.

0:04:030:04:06

I was about a three.

0:04:060:04:09

I was minus five.

0:04:090:04:11

I think if I was uncomfortable

inside on a cold wooden floor,

0:04:110:04:17

then how is it for them

when they don't have

0:04:170:04:21

any sort of shelter?

0:04:210:04:23

I think it's going to be ten times,

even 100 times harder on people that

0:04:230:04:27

are sleeping outside,

with no home, no room, no shelter.

0:04:270:04:29

More people should be

taking the time to talk

0:04:290:04:32

to them and try to get them

out of homelessness.

0:04:320:04:35

I think it's giving me the best

insight because there's no other

0:04:350:04:40

experience to make you feel

what they're feeling.

0:04:400:04:45

That's it from me.

0:04:450:04:47

I'm back in just over half-an-hour.
