Does your office Oscar pool count the short films as anything more than tie-breakers? If so, you might be able to gain an edge by visiting the Carolina Theatre, which will be screening all the nominees in the short animated and short live action categories: one program for the live action ones, and one for the animated movies. The animation program is more consistent, with one real gem, "Wild Life," about an English dandy who moves to Alberta, Canada in 1909 to try his hand at ranching, while most of the others are well-done if overly whimsical. The live action program might test a viewer's patience as those efforts try to navigate the tricky form of the short film that is not quite a feature but more than a sketch.
