We Love the Best Animated Short Film Category

Of the 24 Oscars given out each year, one category that probably gets the least attention is Best Animated Short Film. That's too bad: These bite-sized movies can pack a surprising emotional punch, and the animation styles are often quite different than the typical Pixar/Dreamworks/CG kinds that are popular now. Today, the Academy revealed the 10 shorts in the running for a nomination, and we found a trailer for one, "Dimanche/Sunday," that looked particularly intriguing. We hope that critter in the road got away OK.
