Due to the extensive theatrical distribution, it’s not difficult to catch up on the Best Picture Oscar contenders, but when it comes to the shorts category, it can be a challenge. We already provided you reviews of the Best Live-Action Shorts and Best Animated Shorts (with Best Documentary Shorts coming soon) and now distributors have made available all the animated offerings. We previously got a peek at Disney’s charming Paperman and while we praised that and Fresh Guacamole the most, they are all worth watching, with Adam and Dog having some of the most impressive animation of the bunch. Check them all out below.

A playful dog exploring the newly created world comes upon the first man.
Head Over Heels (Timothy Reckart and Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly)

Fresh Guacamole (PES)

Paperman (John Kahrs)
