    So was the Toy Story short that appeared before The Muppets already disqualified several rounds ago or never submitted to begin with? Not that I was particularly impressed with it, to be perfectly honest.

    WHOOPS, I’m sorry, wrong short film category. But the question still stands because I remember TS not advancing on whatever was the last list of animated shorts.

    I saw Je Pourrais Être Votre Grand-Mère (I Could Be Your Grandmother) on cable TV more than a year ago, I guess they screened it on US theaters only this year. This will clinch a nomination coz it’s a got a novel idea and the short film committee has a penchant for picking European shorts especially one with such a title and also one that involves a granny or an old lady.
