Some of the Oscar categories are hard to make a good guess at which film will win because the films aren’t easily available to view. Well, the Internet has helped change that in the past few years, so let’s take advantage of it to review one of lesser talked about categories:
BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM
Below are the five nominees for 2013’s Best Animated Short Film. Watch and review them to make your best prediction on which one will take home the Oscar this year. You can watch all the films in about 35 minutes to help you decide which one you think will take home the Oscar this year, plus you seen some pretty great short films.
Of all the nominees, this is the film that you’re most likely to have already seen as it played before Wreck-It Ralph in movie theaters during the past few months.
This may be considered abstract film, but it’s short and sweet and the idea is fun to watch.
Head Over Heels
This claymation short tells a beautiful story of two people overcoming a unique difference between the two so that they can be together.
Maggie Simpson in “The Longest Daycare”
Certainly the animated short with the most name recognition,Matt Groening’s Maggie Simpson must survive a difficult day at her daycare after making a new friend.
UPDATE 2.21.13: The original embedded video has been removed so you will have to click here to watch Maggie Simpson in “The Longest Daycare.”
Adam and Dog
The longest of the animated shorts at about 15 minutes, this short film tells the story of how a dog became “man’s best friend.” Yes, it is that Adam.
