What’s Up?: ‘Shorts’ Win big at the Oscars


The Oscars had some amazing moments: Jared Leto, Lupita N’yong’o and Matthew Mcconaughey’s speeches were powerful, moving and poignant. They were filler, though for the announcement of the winners in the ‘shorts’ category and we were not disappointed! #itsashort

Mr. Hublot, winner for Best Animation.

A fabulous story about a robot, Mr. Hublot, who is , yep, mechanical in all things but it all changes when he finds a robot dog! Heartwarming! Would you ever think mechanical can also be emotional? Kinda works…like the movie ‘Her’.

Helium, Winner Live Action Short

Nothing is more heartbreaking than to see a child suffer for any reason, but a debilitating illness is the worst. Creating magical drama to encourage ¬†and inspire this child was so moving…telling stories about a magical place called Helium…reminds us of and that Life is Beautiful.

The Lady in Number 6, winner best Documentary

And, the third winning short, ultimately a tribute in memoriam. The Lady in Number 6′ an inspiring documentary about the longest surviving holocaust survivor who died two weeks before the Oscars at the age of 110. Its about her love of music and life. Music was the reason for her survival at Auschwitz, she and several others were spared by the Nazi’s because of their ability to play beautiful music and throughout her life, she proclaimed music to be life. Others in this short film talked about her music and it’s importance over the course of her entire life.
