The five animated shorts are all worth buying a ticket to see. They will be hitting theaters soon. You can find out where and more about all of the shorts on their site.
So far, I’ve made it through four of the five animated films and am half-way through the live action. The shorts, like the documentaries, are usually better than the nominated films in the feature category – except this year, the Academy picked some very good films for its Best Picture lineup.
The best of the bunch, to my mind, are Paperman and Adam and Dog. You’ve likely already seen Fresh Guacamole, as it’s been floating around on YouTube for a while now.
