Wondering why times are missing?

Academy Award Nominated Animated Shorts 2005

How can you go wrong? Every one of these little gems was nominated for an Academy Award. "The Mysterious Explorations of Jasper Morello" from Australia is an amazingly detailed Gothic sci-fi film--sort or Jules Verne by way of Tim Burton. "Badgered" from the UK is a charming little comedy about a sleepy badger. "9" is a technically amazing bit of CGI fantasy about a rag doll fighting off a junkyard monster. "The Flower and the Fan" is a typically oddball anthropomorphic romance from Bill Plympton. "The Moon and the Son: An Imagined Conversation" has a son conversing with his dead father and working through assorted family skeletons. A terriffic, incredibly diverse collection. 77 minutes
