Best Short Film -- Animated
Nominees: Bear Story, Prologue, Sanjay's Super Team, We Can't Live Without Cosmos, World of Tomorrow
What to pick: Bear Story
Let us explain: This is a category with fierce competition. Standouts include World of Tomorrow, a heady, stick-figure-illustrated sci-fi parable and Sanjay's Super Team, a Pixar short that turns Hindu gods into superheroes. But pick the Chilean Bear Story. It's the touching story of an artist... who happens to be a bear. And as The Revenant proves, bears are very in this year.
How to foil the competition: "Did I mention the superhero movie is Pixar? Yeah, THE Pixar."
