56 Shorts Qualify for Oscar Race

56 animated short films qualify for the 2012 Oscar race.

Following a special two-day screening event in New York organized by Patrick Harrison and John Fahr, animator Michael Sporn on his Splog blog details a list of 57 (Update: 56! Sporn's blog inadvertently skips #44) animated shorts that have qualified for the 2012 Oscar race. The number is quite a jump from 2011, when 45 shorts qualified. In 2010, only 33 shorts qualified for the award.

Commenting that the event was “like attending an animation festival compressed into two days,” Sporn notes that the screenings were only for the hard of heart. Here, in alphabetical order, is the complete list. Head over to Sporn’s blog to see which films stood out for him, and let us know your favorites in the comments:
