Oscars 2014 — Best Animated Short

Classic Disney resurfaces with Get a Horse!, the short film before Frozen including original Mickey Mouse voiced by Walt Disney. Despite the incredible beauty of Feral, there’s a slim chance anything will beat Disney’s 3D entry.

  1. Get a Horse! – A look back at classic Disney. Mickey, Minnie, Horace Horsecollar, and Clarabelle Cow venture together until Peg-Leg Pete gets in their way. In one of the best uses of 3D, this is a sure bet to win.
  2. Feral – One of the most uniquely beautiful animated shorts of the year, a wild boy found in the woods is brought into civilization where he is alienated due to his coping strategies.
  3. Mr. Hublot – This withdrawn man must deal with having to share his home with the intrusion of Robot Pet.
  4. Room on the Broom – A witch allows multiple animals on her broom when a dragon attacks.
  5. Possessions – Dazzling Miyazaki-like imagery triumphs as a man comes across a small shrine where things come to life due to spirits in the area.
