Critic Reviews for The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2013: Animation
If you're primed for the sudden shifts in tone, style, story and look, the payoff is one provocative and evocative film after another.
The "Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts 2012" lack the consistency of last year's group ...
There are three separate annual compilations of Oscar-nominated shorts, with the animation reel always more popular than the live-action and documentary offerings.
This year's Academy Award nominees in the category of animated short film feel notably old-fashioned, quaint even.
Audience Reviews for The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2013: Animation
The five animated shorts nominated for an Academy Award this years, plus some bonus shorts to round out the running time. The nominees are the fun but slight 2-minute stop-motion "Fresh Guacamole"; the clever standalone Simpsons short "The Last Day Care"; Disney's romantic "Paperman"; "Head Over Heels," about a wife who lives on the ceiling while hubby takes the floor; and "Adam and Dog," about man's first encounter with his canine pal in the Garden of Eden. Curiously, none of the nominated shorts have any dialogue. The black and white "Paperman" looks great and is the prohibitive favorite, but my vote would go to "Adam and Dog" for the best combination of visual artistry and storytelling. Overall a bit of an uneven and even a weak field (comparitively speaking) make this a worthwhile but innessenial compilation.
