This year, a record 92 animated shorts are in the running for an Academy Award. We published a preliminary list of qualified films here, along with the criteria for qualifying.

Of the 92 shorts, more than two dozen are currently available to view for free online. Scroll down to watch them all, in alphabetical order.

A caveat: their availability is subject to change — some will be temporarily taken offline again, while other qualified shorts will go online in the near future. If you want to make sure you see all of these shorts, you should watch them promptly.

The 92 films will be whittled down to a 10-film shortlist, to be announced on Monday, December 16.
