Final Predictions - Shorts

***Disclaimer note. I am going off of a consensus among experts, but personally and completely unsure of these predictions***

Okay, now that that is over with, here are the predictions:

Best Animated Short
“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 (Madagascar, a Journey Diary)” Bastien Dubois

Will Win: Day & Night
Could Win: The Gruffalo

Commentary - This race seems to be down to the two films mentioned above, and while I'm not sure, I'm going with Pixar as the safe choice.

Best Documentary Short
“Killing in the Name” Jed Rothstein
“Poster Girl” Sara Nesson and Mitchell W. Block
“Strangers No More” Karen Goodman and Kirk Simon
“Sun Come Up” Jennifer Redfearn and Tim Metzger
“The Warriors of Qiugang” Ruby Yang and Thomas Lennon

Will Win - Strangers No More
Could Win - any of the other four

Commentary - A film about an international school in Israel seems right up the Academy's alley.

Best Live Action Short
“The Confession” Tanel Toom
“The Crush” Michael Creagh
“God of Love” Luke Matheny
“Na Wewe” Ivan Goldschmidt
“Wish 143” Ian Barnes and Samantha Waite

Will Win - Na Wewe
Could Win - Wish 143

Commentary - Like a four year old...Because I said so!
