Oscar Week: Shorts

Host: Taika Waititi, director of Thor: Ragnarok and previous Live Action Short Film nominee

The Academy celebrated the nominated films and filmmakers in this evening spotlighting the Animated Short Film and Live Action Short Film categories. This year’s selection of animated films demonstrates an extraordinary range of filmmaking techniques, from graphite on paper to stop-motion animation. The live action shorts span three continents and capture the stories of a wide range of characters. Hosted by Taika Waititi, Academy Award nominee for the live action short Two Cars, One Night (2004), the event included a screening of all 10 nominated shorts in their entirety, as well as discussions with all of the nominated filmmakers.
