the nominations for the oscars came out. here's the list for short animated film:
La Maison en Petits Cubes - Kunio Kato
Lavatory - A Love Story - Konstantin Bronzit
Oktapodi - A Gobelins, L’école de l’image Production
Presto - Pixar, Doug Sweetland
This Way Up - Alan Smith and Adam Foulkes
kinda disappointed "I Am So Proud of You" by Don Hertzfeldt isn't in the bunch, but such is life. surprised Bill Plympton's Hot Dog didn't make it either, but i suppose since its part of a "series," its time to honor some other shorts. here's the only student film among them, Oktapodi:
its got some great animation -- and its very smooth, but like I remarked before...I would've liked to see some more challenging animation story-wise recognized by Academy. maybe one day...
