2008 Oscar-Eligible Animated Shorts

Oscar Contenders

Michael Sporn has a complete list of all the animated shorts eligible for an Oscar this year, along with links to their official websites. It’s heartening to see so many powerful and thought-provoking films in contention this year, among them Chainsaw by Dennis Tupicoff, Franz Kafka’s A Country Doctor by Koji Yamamura, A Letter to Colleen by Andy and Carolyn London, I Am So Proud of You by Don Hertzfeldt, and Skhizein by Jeremy Clapin. I hope at least a few of these make the final cut.
