Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Live Action Short

The competition: Asad, Buzkashi Boys, Curfew, Death of a Shadow, Henry

Previous winners: The Shore, God of Love, The New Tenants, Toyland, The Mozart of Pickpockets, West Bank Story, Six Shooter, Wasp
Who should win: I just finished watching these films, only hours before the Oscars are set to air. They all dealt with death, and my favorite was “Asad,” which had an eager hero in a young Somali boy. “Death of a Shadow” was creative in its supernatural concept, and “Curfew” was clever and endearing also. “Buzkashi Boys” didn’t do much for me, and “Henry” doesn’t really compare to a feature-length film about a similar subject this year, “Amour.”
Who will win: My bet is the quirky Curfew, but it could be any of them.
