Oscar Nominees: Best Live Action Short

My predictions: 2/5
The nominees: Ala Kachuu – Take and Run, The Dress, The Long Goodbye, On My Mind, Please Hold

I may not have done a great job predicting the nominees, but I did get to see all fifteen of the shortlisted films and interview all the filmmakers, so I’m excited to see these films honored now. I’m particularly happy to see Ala Kachuu – Take and Run since it was ranked dead last on GoldDerby, and it’s a great choice. I didn’t predict The Dress, On My Mind, and Please Hold, but they all make sense as nominees. The Long Goodbye was the other one I guessed correctly, which isn’t a surprise given its Oscar-nominated star. Click on the film titles to watch my conversations with the filmmakers!

My current bet to win: I’ll go with On My Mind for now with “The Long Goodbye” as runner-up.
