02.22.13 by BJSprecher
Become the animated shorts authority at your Oscar party this year in under 90 minutes!
This VOD Recommendation is a little different than our usual blogs in which we tease you with a clever or provocative headline in the hopes of enticing you into checking out a new on Demand movie release that you might have otherwise overlooked. This time around, we figured that telling you what the new release is up front is incentive enough to get you to check it out. After all, depending upon where you live, you probably had the opportunity to watch all of the feature films nominated for Oscars, but it's highly unlikely you were able to catch even one of the five contenders for this year's Academy Award-nominated animated shorts.
