Awards/Review: The Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts of 2013

On Oscar night there are going to be three instances where they ceremony will take its moment to award short films in the categories of Animated, Live-Action and Documentary. And at this moment, the average home viewer will probably not be paying full attention, or care. I mean if Clooney or Jolie or Affleck isn’t on stage then who cares right?

One of the reasons the Golden Globes gets so much hate is because of its lack of technical categories and honoring the shorts, its a marketable Hollywood festival to award actors, actors that the home-viewer will watch. Not the Sound Mixer or the Editor.. This is where the Academy Awards are better (but usually not by much) the moment when they honor the achievements in film for the previous year that the majority of the population won’t recognize, even though the films and filmmakers fully deserve the attention.

Enough ranting, on to the reviews of the Oscar nominated Animated Shorts of 2013
