Day & Night on Oscars “Short” List!

The Academy has made public a list of ten films as they inch closer on the road to Best Animated Short.

Earlier this month, we got to a preview of 33 films, including Pixar’s Day & Night, that could possibly land the category. Here are the lucky ten that did, in fact, capture a preliminary spot:

• The Cow Who Wanted to Be a Hamburger — Bill Plympton
Coyote Falls — Matthew O’Callaghan
Day & Night — Teddy Newton
The Gruffalo — Jakob Schuh and Max Lang
Let’s Pollute — Geefwee Boedoe
The Lost Thing — Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann
Madagascar, Carnet de Voyage — Bastien Dubois
Sensology —Michel Gagne
The Silence Beneath the Bark — Joanna Lurie
Urs — Moritz Mayerhoffer

Notice any familiar names? Other than Teddy Newton, a couple of the directors above are also well known Pixarians! 

Nominations are set to be announced on January 25, 2011. The 83rd Annual Academy Award ceremony will be presented on February 27, 2011.

    Day & Night. The Lost Thing is cute as a book, but as a film, it’s just not very good. But it’s FAR better than this awful little film called sensology. Saw it a bit ago, and it’s just boring. Day & Night is far and away the best of these films, even if the ending is a bit overdone.
