When it comes to the Academy Awards, there are so many nominations for so many categories, it’s easy to overlook some of the work nominated — namely, the short-film categories. This week, the Avenue took some time to watch the nominated short films, which range from four to 80 minutes, from the three categories: animated, live-action and documentary. We reviewed the films so our readers can decide which ones are well worth paying attention to. We also made predictions as to which film will take the Oscar home. From cute animations to weird darkness to tear-jerking acting, there’s probably a film for you to watch. If any of these catch your interest, you can head over to the Hippodrome State Theatre through Feb. 12 to watch some of these short films. Tickets, which range from $5 to $7.50, and show times for each category can be found on the Hippodrome’s website.
