Animated Thoughts: Academy Awards

Well, hopefully by now you've had the opportunity to visit the Detroit Institute of Art's Film Theatre screening of the Academy Award nominated short films program. But, if not, you can watch all the nominated films online with the exception of the Simpson's short: 'The Longest Daycare' (which will be shown on broadcast television Sunday, February 17th on your local FOX channel).

The following four (out of five) films have been nominated for an Academy Award in the 'Short Film - Animated' category. Please note: one of these films is NSFW.

UPDATE: I've located a copy of 'The Longest Daycare', however this wasn't posted on Fox's YouTube channel, so it's anyone's best guess how long it'll be up there.
