  • All four of the ... animators have clearly demonstrated by their work that they can be trusted to take a more prominent role in studio features going forward.

  • A likeable enough group, in which the expected contenders (why hello there, Pixar) sit alongside unknowns whose styles are just varied enough to avoid monotony.

  • The odds-on favorite to win this year's Oscar for best animated short film is Alan Barillaro's Piper... I'd hate to be one of the other animators... especially since most of them have better films in competition.

  • Arresting, often impassioned and technically deft proof that a film doesn't have to drone on for an hour and a half to qualify as art.

  • The animated nominees include handmade as well as digital productions, and dark, adult themes as well as child-friendly charm and whimsy.

  • By far the most polished of this year's offerings, and the one that will surely get the broadest exposure, is from Pixar.
