Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts 2020

Short films are a crucial proving ground for up-and-coming filmmakers, and a very entertaining cinematic form for the audience. Almost anyone these days can make a short film, and there are lots out there, but the best ones are a superb showcase for new movie-making talent. The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences selects the best of the year and nominates them for Oscars, in three different categories.

This year's nominees for Best Animtated Short Film are:
