Oscar Time: Best Animated Shorts

It’s Oscar season here in LA. Glitz, glamor and all that crap. But as we all know, what’s really important this time of year is the money you can make off your good-natured but clueless friends. Oscar pools are everywhere. And while everyone likes to focus on the big awards like “Best Picture,” it’s nailing the smaller categories that earns you the cash.

So throughout the week we’ll be posting videos of nominees you may not have seen before. Yeah, Oscar politics are insane, so the best films may not win. But, at the very least, you’ll be able to bitch about who got jobbed.

Watch the films nominated for “Best Animated Short” after the jump.

  • Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty — Nicky Phelan and Darragh O’Connell

  • The Lady and the Reaper (La Dama y la Muerte) — Javier Recio Gracia
