The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has announced the 10-film shortlist of animated shorts that will advance in the voting process for the 92nd Academy Awards, and at least half of those films are currently available to view for free online.

The 10 shorts were selected from a record 92 submissions in the category.

A caveat: the availability of these shorts is subject to change at any moment. If you want to make sure you see all of these shorts, watch them promptly — and definitely before Monday, January 13, 2020, when the Oscar nominations are announced and the field is whittled down to just five films. Scroll down to watch the five currently available shorts, in alphabetical order.

And to the other five filmmakers who haven’t yet made their films available: WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


Hair Love — Matthew A. Cherry, Everett Downing Jr., Bruce W. Smith (U.S.)

Hors Piste — Léo Brunel, Loris Cavalier, Camille Jalabert, Oscar Malet (France)

Kitbull — Rosana Sullivan (U.S.)

Sister — Siqi Song (U.S./China)

Uncle Thomas: Accounting for The Days — Regina Pessoa (Portugal/Canada/France)
