2013 Oscar Nominations

By January 10, 2013

Maggie SimpsonMaybe you thought a TV show, a cartoon even, could never nab a nomination for an Oscar? Think again. The 2013 Academy Award nominations were announced today, including a nomination for Maggie Simpson in The Longest Daycare, the animated short that ran before Ice Age: Continental Drift last summer. In the animated short film, Maggie cleverly protects a butterfly from her nemesis, Gerald the uni-brow baby. The short is funny, smart and shows several sight gags.

The other nominations for Short Film (Animated) are: Adam and Dog by Minkyu Lee; Fresh Guacamole by PES; Head over Heels by Timothy Reckart and Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly; and Paperman by John Kahrs. Though I love The Longest Daycare, those folks at Disney hit a home run with Paperman, the black-and-white animated short that preceded Wreck-It Ralph. Paperman will be hard to beat.
