Simpsons Short Receives Oscar Nomination
I have to say I’m a little disgruntled. As much as I love the Simpsons, I have a hard time that a nomination slot for the Animated Short Oscar is being taken up by a TV property.
Independent animated shorts are an extremely hard road to tow. They get very little recognition and accolades, even though there are many made with extreme creative genius and care. The Academy Awards are their time to shine, and the compilations of the nominated films get a lot of exposure.
I have to admit I have not seen the short, and I’m sure it’s probably excellent having been directed by David Silverman, whose been with the Simpsons from the start. So maybe I have no place to say. And I don’t like saying something is not deserving because they probably already have to put their awards in storage to handle the overflow of their trophy case.
I’m still disappointed.
