From Awards Daily, here’s this year’s list of the 10 films that have been short-listed for the Live Action Short Oscar:

  • The Door, Juanita Wilson
  • The Ground Beneath, Rene Hernandez
  • Hotel, Tim Conrad
  • Instead of Abracadabra, Patrik Eklund
  • Kavi, Gregg Helvey
  • Miracle Fish, Luke Doolan
  • The New Tenants, Joachim Back
  • The Response, Adam Rodgers, director
  • Short Term 12, Destin Daniel Cretton
  • Sidney Turtlebaum, Tristram Shapeero

While a good short can be a great thing, I don’t know jiggedy Jack about any of these. I was going to dig up some info before posting, but then I figured if I waited long enough, some motivated chap would do it for me. Enter Kris Tapley. He at least found clips from five of the lucky short-listees.

  1. I like watching the shorts — live action and documentary — as well as the animated shorts. Fortunately, a theater near me features them in the weeks leading up to Oscarmania.

  2. The last few years both the animated and the live action shorts get a week or two run in major cities prior to the oscars which is pretty cool. I always miss them, but last year’s animation winner was one of the favorite things I ended up seeing all year so this year I’m going to seek them out.
