This blog is where you put in your choice for who is going to win in the Oscar Category for Best Animated Film (short subject). The fee to enter is $1. You win entry fee money and bragging rights. Since there are five options and 27 of us, odds are pretty good that multiple people will win; therefore the winnings will be split as evenly as possible amongst the winners.
I will not be entering the competition, but you can see my previous entry for my thoughts on each of the nominees.
If you want to enter, tell me in class, or comment on this blog. Because the ceremony itself is on Sunday 26, your vote must be in by February 25 to qualify. Your entry fee is due Tuesday 28, when the winners of the pool will be announced.
If you want to put in votes for the other categories, please feel free to! There’s no money in it or anything, but whoever gets the most correct will win bragging rights and maybe cookies baked by me.
A full list of nominees can be found here. The animated short subject nominees are as follows:
“Dimanche/Sunday” Patrick Doyon- A small boy’s Sunday is filled with both ordinary and extraordinary events.
“The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg- A storm transports a young man to a place where books are living entities.
“La Luna” Enrico Casarosa- A young boy accompanies his father and grandfather to their unusual nighttime job.
“A Morning Stroll” Grant Orchard and Sue Goffe- A New Yorker passes a chicken out for its morning stroll.
“Wild Life” Amanda Forbis and Wendy Tilby- A young Englishman with more enthusiasm than practical experience emigrates to Canada to become a rancher.
