The Academy Can’t Resist Animated Books

Last night’s Oscars didn’t have many great surprises or exciting moments, but I was glad to see that The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore won for best animated short. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out here:

I haven’t seen the other nominees, but this one is so beautifully done I’m really glad it won. Who were your Oscar favorites?

  1. What a cool little piece! I never really get into too much of the Oscar stuff (too many other things going on, lol!), so thanks for sharing this. I loved it. Then again, anything with books…

  2. I love, love, LOVE this short film! I’ll admit, it’s one of the few “short film” nominees I’ve ever actually watched. Someone sent it my way a few months ago and I fell head over heals, instantly. I was so happy to see it win! (And The Artist, too, which I completely adored). It’s nice when the Academy and I can agree! 🙂
