Oscar-Nominated Shorts @ Film Forum

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013


I watch the Academy Awards every year. For hours, I sit through all the self-congratulatory bullshit and excruciating banter and Revlon ads and unfunny jokes, just so I can yell at the TV when The Artist (arguably the most overrated movie ever made) sweeps the big categories, while Moneyball and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy get royally shafted. I fucking hate the Oscars and everything they stand for, but I also kind of love them.

If you feel the same way, then you might want to check out the Film Forum this weekend. Do you like live-action short films? Do you like animated short films? Do you like short documentaries? Well, they’re going to be showing all short subject nominees on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. Here’s the full schedule.

You can watch one of the animated nominees above. It’s a charming and wonderful Simpsons short called  The Longest Daycare and it should be reason enough to consider buying a ticket to this thing.

Animated Shorts: Thursday February 21, 7:30pm
Live-Action Shorts: Friday February 22, 7:30pm
Documentary Shorts: Sunday February 24, 3pm
