…but this year, the Best Animated Short film nominees are all really good, so you have no excuse.

Madame Tutli-Putli is expected to win, and it should. You can watch the thing here (and no, I didn’t know they had LiveJournal in Russia, either). It’s about the titular character and her train journey across the Canadian wilderness, but it’s really about so much more than that. It’s deeply affecting and psychologically creepy and the animation (which is all stop-animation with puppets) is beautiful. It reportedly took the animators four years to complete, so you owe them 17 minutes.
