The Oscar Nominated Shorts: Animation.

The Oscars are just two days away and that means Moviedozer is going back for one more look at 2013's Oscar nominated Shorts before the big night.

On February 10th,  I spotlighted the Animated Short Paperman (Oscar nominated shorts: Paperman), with both a look at its production through its director's eyes and its trailer. Today, Moviedozer fills in the rest of the field of nominated Animated Shorts.

Below is an introduction to the nominees, provided by an overview trailer notably hosted by last year's winners William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, directors of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. The two men share what it was like for them just a year ago, while giving brief glimpses at the field of five nominated films for this year.

Here are the Animated Shorts nominated for the 2013 Oscars

As a very special feature, Moviedozer is also proud to showcase one of this year's nominated shorts in its entirety. Adam and Dog is written and directed by Minkyu Lee. Exceptional for it's artistic hand-drawn frames and simple, wordless storytelling, the short film is available to Moviedozer in its complete length rather than as a trailer. As such, it's an unusual pleasure to be able to showcase the complete film here.

Thanks for following our Oscar Nominated Shorts columns. Moviedozer will be watching along with you on Sunday night and celebrating one of global cinema's most festive occasions.
