This is Dimples favorite time of year. We love animated short films and there are some wonderful films nominated for an Oscar this year.Â We’re also all about 2D and you can guess our favorites.
Here they are, the nominees for this years animated short.
â€œDay & Nightâ€ Teddy Newton
â€œThe Gruffaloâ€ Jakob Schuh and Max Lang
â€œLet’s Polluteâ€ Geefwee Boedoe
â€œThe Lost Thingâ€ Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann
â€œMadagascar, carnet de voyage (Madagascar, a Journey Diary)â€ Bastien Dubois
Here’s a huge dose of cuteness from Warner Brothers. “The Milky Way” was the first animated cartoon not made by Disney to win an Academy award. The story is based on a nursery rhyme classic about the three little kittens who lost their mittens. As you watch this notice the masterful use of squash and stretch. This cartoon and other classics are available on DVD in the Warner Brothers Academy Award Collection.
Suzie Templeton and Hugh Welchman won the Oscar for best animated short, Peter and the Wolf, as Dimples predicted they would. Congratulations!
It was a great movie and we loved the goose. However, did anyone really watch anything last night except Marion Cotillard? La Vie en Rose was a badly made movie. The way the timeline was used to tell the story was very confusing and yet, no one can deny that Cotillard was absolutely brilliant.
The Dimples Animated Short Oscar Poll is closed. Fifty votes were cast and the winner was “Lifted.” Dimples personal favorite among this years nominated shorts is “The Danish Poet.” But, which film will win? Our best guess at Darling Dimples is that “The Little Match Girl” will take home the statue tonight. Thanks to everyone who participated.
