Here are the five animated short films that have been nominated for an Oscar at the 2013 Academy Awards. It's a great group of nominees this year, and it's usually been hard to watch these kinds of shorts before, so it's really cool that we are able to watch them now before the Oscars. The shorts include, Adam and Dog directed by Minkyu Lee, Fresh Guacamole directed by PES, Head over Heels directed by Timothy Reckart and Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly, Maggie Simpson in The Longest Daycare directed by David Silverman, and Paperman directed by John Kahrs.
They are all really good films, but I'm going to be rooting for Disney's Paperman because it was so damn adorable, and I loved the animation! Watch all the shorts for yourself, and let us know what your favorite is!
