Oscar Nominees: Best Live Action Short

My predictions: 2/5
The nominees: Feeling Through, The Letter Room, The Present, Two Distant Strangers, White Eye

I’ve seen four of these films but only managed to predict two correctly. The biggest surprise is that Pedro Almodovar’s Tilda Swinton-starring “The Human Voice” isn’t here. The Oscar Isaac vehicle The Letter Room did get in, as did Feeling Through, a sweet story of an unexpected friendship. Both the Palestinian and Israeli entries in this category, The Present and White Eye, made it, and they’re both great. The one I haven’t seen is Two Distant Strangers, so more on that once I’ve had the chance to screen it.

My current bet to win: I’m going with Feeling Through.
