Academy Award Nominations for Best Animated Short in 2006

Here are the 2006 Academy Award Nominations for Best Short. I'm posting this in anticipation of the nominations for 2007. I put these animations in order of least suckiness. Enjoy.


- From Pixar

- Released with Ratatouille, 1st at the Chicago International Film Festival

- Used to test a new jiggle system of animation

- The guy is Linguini, the main human from Ratatouille

- Good ending

- Wrong music/sound

The Little Matchgirl:

- From Disney

- Originally intended to be part of Fantasia 2006

- This is 3D animation that looks like it is 2D. The effect is amazing.

- Released on the 2006 Platinum DVD of The Little Mermaid

- Directed by Robert Allers, who directed The Lion King

- Just part of it

- No sound

- I'm surprised they didn't win the award with this one.


- Good ending

No Time for Nuts:

- Done by Fox's Blue Sky

- Released on DVD with Ice Age 2

- Stars the sabre-toothed squirrel, Scrat

The Danish Poet:

- This should be on Reading Rainbow

- From the National Film Board of Canada

- This won the Academy Award. They must get extra points for having the least ability to animate.
