91st Academy Awards – Best Animated Short Film Nominees

About the 91st Annual Academy Awards

The 91st Academy Awards (The Oscars) will honor the best films of 2018.  The Academy Awards will be given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to 24 categories. The event will be hosted at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. The ceremony will be held on February 24, 2019.

Prediction: I would really love to see the movie, one small step, win this category. The animation is absolutely stunning and the storyline is heartwarming. I do think the movie, the weekends is a strong contender as well. Two very different films that discuss the lifestyle and mentality of young children.
