Cartoon Brew has published the list of the 33 animated short films that have fulfilled the qualifications necessary to be considered in the category of Best Animated Short for the 2010 Academy Awards.
From their website: "Members of the Short Films and Feature Animation Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will vote on a shortlist of ten films from this list. A second round of voting, also restricted to members of the Short Films and Feature Animation branches, will narrow it down to the five nominees for Best Animated Short Film Oscar. The final vote, which determines the winner, is open to all Academy members provided that they have watched every nominated short."
The competition looks very stiff with most of the films on the list having garnered several major awards, whereas my film, Sensology, has not played or been entered in any festival thus far. It's also interesting to notice that it is the only abstract film on the list. I don't know if this is a good or a bad thing, but it should at least help it stick out.
Let's keep our fingers crossed.
On a different note, we got our first snow fall of the year, last night. When we woke up this morning, the view from our windows was absolutely stunning. Nancy took the opportunity to snap a few pictures.
