Earlier this month, we exclusively reported that 96 animated shorts have qualified for this year’s Oscar. That may be a record.
As every year, some of the qualified films can be watched online for free. We’ve listed them below. A caveat: the availability of these shorts is subject to change at any moment, and others not currently on the list may come online — we’ll endeavor to add them here as and when they do.
Our list doesn’t feature films that can be watched online with a streaming subscription. These include Disney-Pixar’s Out, Loop, Wind, Float, and Burrow, as well as Maggie Simpson in “Playdate with Destiny”, which are available on Disney+; Netflix’s three shorts in contention: Canvas, Cops and Robbers, and If Anything Happens I Love You; and Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth, which is on Apple TV+.
