2012 Oscar Nominated Shorts: Animated
The trailer for my favorite, A Morning Stroll. Excellent animation, humorous, yet still with something to say. Dimanche was a close second for me. Also a strong showing from Pixar, as always. Wild Life was beautiful, but I felt like there was something to get that I missed. However, in a year where Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, War Horse, and The Help are nominated for Best Picture, I have a feeling that The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, a somewhat charming, yet overly sentimental fantasy about the importance of books and stories in the aftermath of natural disaster (from Louisiana of course, with some Wizard of Oz and Buster Keaton thrown in for good measure), will win. Also shown were the commended films, including Skylight, a hilarious mockumentary about the holes in the ozone.
