Oscar Nominees: Short Films

For my first time predicting these categories, I didn’t do too badly, scoring ten out of fifteen. I’m excited to report that, for the first time as far as I know, the documentary shorts will be shown along with the live action and animated ones, so I should have the opportunity to see all fifteen nominated shorts on February 20th and offer winner predictions before Oscar night. Since I’ve only seen two of the animated shorts at this point and nothing else, I’ll wait to offer commentary until them. All images below are from
