I could have sworn this is a double, but damned if I can find the first one.

So, uh… thanks!

Although… this seems only to have excerpts. Ne'er mind.

The Animation World Network always has clips online for the Oscar shorts (and feature films).

Check your local arthouse movie listings, and you'll be able to see all of the animated and live action Oscar nominated short films on the big screen.

A friend of a friend of mine worked on "Peter and the Wolf", and reports that the head animator now refuses to answer to anything other than "Esteemed Nominee". :)

Except, of course, they aren't even coming to my state. I'm disappointed, really, YouTube does a horrible job of capturing the beauty in these shorts.

God damn.. Madame Tutli-Putli took them 2 years to animate. Watching the video on how they made it is almost depressing, considering how many animators there must that have put in the same sort of effort without this sort of recognition (or any kind of payoff, really).

Most of the Youtube clips are now "no longer available".

Well, I'll see it in the theater when it comes through over the summer, like I do every year.
