According to The Independent, there is a "strong crop of Animated Short Film nominees this year". Some of these will be shown at the Carolina theater this weekend at 3 pm. Let's review all 88 minutes of them and do our own analysis. Who will get the Oscar?
Meet in the upstairs lobby between 2:30 and 2:40. The movie starts at 3 and may be crowded so get there early. I believe normal matinee prices apply ($7) but I will check to be sure.
List of Shorts to be shown:
