FEAST wins Best Animated Short

Congratulations to Patrick Osborn and the rest of the staff at Disney Animation for winning the Best Animated Short Oscar for Feast. While I still felt The Dam Keeper was better, it's a lot more well deserved than Big Hero 6 winning for Best Animated Feature (but then again I'm obviously biased towards The Tale of the Princess Kaguya).

Best Animated Short - 2014

Well, it was almost a month ago that the Oscar nominations were announced, and sadly I wasn't able all of the nominated films until this past weekend, when they did the showings of the nominated short films in select theaters around the country. I had to drive overnight Thursday night to make it from Florida (where I had been to check out two of the Missing Five). And unfortunately I didn't have time to write the review until now*, almost a week after the showing, so you'll have to excuse the quality of these reviews. However, here it is, the review for the most recent batch of Best Animated Short nominees.

*it was mostly because I was driving all around the northeast visiting graves of 300-game winners. Yes, I sure have my priorities straight.
