Animated Shorts. For over a decade, Shorts HD and Magnolia Pictures present the Oscar-Nominated Short Films, opening on Jan. 31st.With all three categories offered – Animated, Live Action and Documentary
– this is your annual chance to predict the winners (and have the edge in your Oscar pool)! A perennial hit with audiences around the country and the world, don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts.The Academy Awards take place February 9th. Runtimes are estimates.

A note about the Animated Shorts: The themes tackled in this year’s Animated program are mature – the death of a parent, Alzheimer’s, China’s one child policy, and more. Most of these shorts will not appeal to children under 12, at all. Adult and mature audiences will appreciate these shorts more than children.
