Best Animated Short Nominees

French Roast

Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty (Brown Bag Films)
Granny O’Grimm tells a story to her young granddaughter about Sleeping Beauty, or at least that’s what you think at first, soon you realize the story’s about an old fairy. It’s a fun film, but nothing spectacular. Definitely worth watching though.

The Lady and the Reaper (La Dama y la Muerte)
In the still of her sleep, la Dama finds her soul leaving her body. She’s greeted by la Muerte, who assures here that she’ll rejoin her dead husband. A smile creeps up on her face, and suddenly she’s back to life, in a hospital. Thus begins an epic battle for her life between the reaper and the doctor. It’s hilarious, and fun, and good proof that cartoons aren’t for kids.

Logorama (Autour de Minuit)
In a world made up of logos, Ronald McDonald goes batshit-crazy and is on the run from the law michelin man. I absolutely loved this! Fuckin’ hilarious!

A Matter of Loaf and Death (Aardman Animations)
“I’ve got a bomb in my pants!” Definitely not the best of Wallace and Gromit, and I’ve never been a big fan of them. I don’t really see the appeal too much, so I’m gonna give this a thumbs horizontal. I didn’t hate it, I didn’t love it.
