The five Academy Award nominees for animated short film this year split up into two disparate groups: happy meal and white tablecloth.

Themes of isolation and friendship play out in another fine crop of Academy-nominated toon shorts.

The fact that dedicated committees of conscientious human beings who know a lot about how movies are made weeded through hundreds and hundreds of submissions and picked their favorites ... is something to be grateful for.

Audience Reviews for Oscar Nominated Animated Short Films 2014

I'll quote my 2013 review: "I love the showcase of solid animation. A worthwhile watch by any standard. I'm not sure about the host segments though."

A great collection of films. My favorite was "Possessions" with an intriguing art style and bizarre characters. Disappointed that "The Missing Scarf" was shortlisted, as it was a compelling twist on the genre. Glad to still see it get screen time as a runner-up, though.
