Oscar Animation Shortlists

Recently, the Academy released two shortlists, one for Animated Feature, and another for Animated Short. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2
The Croods
Despicable Me 2
Epic
Ernest and Celestine (France)
The Fake (South Korea)
Free Birds
Frozen
Khumba (South Africa)
The Legend of Sarila (Canada)
A Letter to Momo (Japan)
Monsters University
O Apóstolo (Spain)
Planes
Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie – Rebellion (Japan)
Rio: 2096 A Story of Love and Fury (Brazil)
The Smurfs 2
Turb
o
The Wind Rises (Japan)

I can’t make head or tails of this category. The Academy might not be able to resist giving this award to Pixar again, but lack of competition might make Hayao Miyazaki’s last film a top contender. As for Frozen, I think we’ll have to wait to see if the film is any good before we start considering it.

BEST ANIMATED SHORT

Feral
Get a Horse!
Gloria Victoria
Hollow Land
The Missing Scarf
Mr. Hublot
Possessions
Requiem for Romance
Room on the Broom
Subconscious Password

Where the hecky wecky is The Blue Umbrella? I don’t know, my guess is Get A Horse! wins this because I’ve heard some good things about that one.
