Take a Worthwhile Break and Watch All of This Year's Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

Cece Chou

Disney’s charming and delightful Paperman. The Simpsons, a show which some might say has several Oscar-worthy episodes--Maggie Simpson in the Longest Daycare squares off against the competition on Sunday night. Other nominated shorts include Adam and Dog, an anime about the Garden of Eden, Head Over Heels, a student-made short about a couple trying to reignite the flame, and Fresh Guacamole, a piece from stop-motion master Pes where various objects sub in as ingredients for guacamole.

    I really liked them all. Not sure why the Paperman short has glitches, but it was cute.

      Same here. Paperman is so sweet no matter how many times you've watched it! I especially like Fresh Guacamole, though didn't really get it.

        Yeah, I tried to refresh it a few times. After trying that I just FF a little further to see the rest. The Fresh Guacamole short was pretty awesome! :-)

          Yeah right?! I feel it must be trying to express something rather than just impress viewers. But I don't get it.

            possibly political... dice=chance, pin cushion=sacrifice, lime=pie chart of something, avocado=grenade=money=corruption, throw lots of chance in there and monopoly houses=cookie cutter/fake/conform/living or government regulations.... I hate to take it there, but I thought the animation was just cool . :-)

              Woah.... I feel your interpretation is great... I couldn't come up with a better one. Thaaaannks!
