Watch 2013 Oscar Nominated Animation Shorts: ‘Adam and Dog’
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

Directed by CalArts graduate Minyun Lee (responsible for character design on Winnie The Pooh and Wreck-It Ralph), and with the help of other artists who also work at Disney, Dreamworks and Pixar; Adam and Dog is a beautifully animated 2D tale about the dog of Eden and what happened in those first days of Creation that made Man and Dog so inseparable. If there is one film that can beat the ultra popular Paperman, it is this one, especially considering it won the 2012 Annie award for animated short subject. Minkyu Lee published this Oscar nominated short animated film on YouTube a week ago, and it quickly collected over half a million views. For a film that features no dialogue, Adam and Dog speaks volumes.
