Regardless if you care about the Oscars or not, everyone watches for two main reasons: to see the stars strut their stuff on the red carpet, and to participate in a yearly Oscar pool. So every year, we try and make it a little easier for everyone who’s having trouble choosing their picks. Not too many people have had the opportunity to watch the animated short films prior to the event, but what most people don’t know, is that they often make their way online in advance of Oscar night. Below you can watch the shorts nominated this year. Let us know who you think has the best chance in winning, and good luck to all the filmmakers nominated. Enjoy

An unseen cook uses a series of unusual ingredients to prepare a bowl of guacamole. Directed by American animator PES (Adam Pesapaneto), Fresh Guacamole is the shortest film ever to be nominated for an Oscar, clocking in at only one minute and 45 seconds. Have you ever stared at avocados and thought they resembled grenades? Well if not, this short will change your view. The film took about four months to create, with shooting taking place over the course of five weeks. Fresh Guacamole amassed 3.5 million hits in the first four days after being uploaded and uses game pieces like poker chips as tortilla chips and dice to represent sliced tomatoes and onions. This stop-motion flick is clever and inventive and makes us wonder what the filmmaker could do with a bigger budget and a longer running time.
