Best Animated Short
Will Win - The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
Should Win/Could Win - La Luna
Commentary - This one is tough, as La Luna has a lot of positive buzz, but it looks like Fantastic Flying Brooks
Best Live Action Short
Will Win - The Shore
Could Win - Tuba Atlantic
Commentary - I honestly don't know, but Terry George's name attached to The Shore may help it cross the finish line.
Best Documentary Short
Will Win - Saving Face
Could Win - The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom
Commentary - Both tackle real issues, and it seems to be split pretty evenly as to which one will take the prize. Something about acid-burned women in Pakistan seems like right down the Academy's alley.
