When it comes to Oscar pools, the make-or-break categories are the three for short films: Animated, Documentary, and Live Action.
Below are links to my reviews for those three separate categories.
These short film packages are playing in theaters nationwide in two different ways:
- As three separate feature length collections, one for each category (you’re likely to find those at independent art house cinemas near you)
- As a single-ticket purchase to view all 15 short films in one single 3 hour and 20 minute marathon. (Check your local listings for that one; Cinemark is participating near me.)
Here are the links to each category, plus my predictions for which shorts will win.
Best Animated Short Subject: 2019 Nominees
