BEST ANIMATED SHORTS

The front-runner for this year’s Best Animated Short is the Sony Animations short, “Hair Love,” which played in front of “The Angry Birds Movie 2” and later “Jumanji: The Next Level” and was also my personal favorite. Pixar has it’s own short in contention with “Kitbull.” The rest of the contenders are foreign entries.
