Preview: Oscar Nominated Shorts (2012)


The Academy Awards has three separate categories recognizing short films: Animation, Live Action and Documentary. HDShorts presents the annual collection of these films that will play across the nation.

  • Poster: C-


The posters are identical and unexceptional to boot. Reaching for the stars is a nice sentiment, but extremely overdone.

  • Trailer: C


Like the posters, HDShorts has taken short clips from each of the fifteen Oscar-nominated short films and separated them into three trailers highlight each of the live action, animation and documentary categories. Some scenes are better than others, but these are more or less clips and not true trailers.

Oscar Prospects:

At least three of these fifteen films will win Oscars. It's just a matter of which three.
