Here is the the complete list of 57 animated shorts that qualified for the 2012 animated short Oscar, courtesy of Michael Sporn. Bear in mind, anyone can qualify a film for Oscar consideration if they follow the proper steps so being on this list doesn’t signify any kind of special accomplishment.

The 57 shorts is a huge jump from 2010 when only 33 shorts qualified for the award and 2011 when 45 shorts qualified.

Members of the Academy’s animation branch have now voted on these shorts. Their voting will result in a shortlist of 10 films. Then, a second round of voting will whittle down the shortlist to the five Oscar nominees.
