Oscar Nominated Shorts Analysis


Trying to predict ALL Oscars categories is not an easy task so you have to "prepare" as much as you can and today together we are going to explore the Oscar nominated shorts using clips from each film.

Animation

Day & Night by Teddy Newton



Watch full short here.

The Gruffalo by Max Lang and Jakob Schuh



Watch full short here.

Let's Pollute by Geefwee Boedoe

The Lost Thing by Andrew Ruhermann and Shaun Tan



Watch full short here.

Madagascar, Carnet de Voyage by Bastien Dubois



Watch full short here.

All right the clips are references but had to watch them completely before daring to do my analysis. So since posting been watching the shorts and the one I like the best is The Lost Thing that has great visuals plus good animation and story (you know me I'm very visual). Then for the story I liked The Gruffalo that also has good animation but is more classical for my taste.

But probably the winner will be Pixar's Day & Night that's the favorite for many and the one gathering more buzz. Another that could have a chance is Let's Pollute for the message and because is done by an ex-Pixar.

So, I'll be picking the ONE I think will win when I do my predictions. Now to the next section.
