Besides the excellent PyObjc-bridge that of course only works for 
Mac-only-development, you might consider PyQt. Biggest drawback: the 
GPL-license. But feature-wise, it beats IMHO all other toolkits.

It looks pretty well under OSX. Not absolutely perfect, but certainly 
better that the alternatives. Google earth for example is created with 
it, at least in the Mac-incarnation.
