4. Lost Property Office

Thanks for posting Sagand. I hope everyone watches soon. They often pull these once they get in the Oscar race. So people will pay to see the short compilation in February.December 4, 2017 at 2:59 pm #1202429428
Kobe Bryant, a potential Oscar nominee…I would never have imagined that, not in a million years. But hey, better him as an Oscar nominee than Justin Bieber, that’s for sure.December 5, 2017 at 12:26 am #1202429721
A bif off topic, but does anyone know when will they release the shortlists for the live-action and doc shorts?December 5, 2017 at 12:38 am #1202429726This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 5, 2017 at 12:41 am #1202429728This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 5, 2017 at 1:20 am #1202429762
What about In A Heartbeat, with all the buzz it got this summer? That’s my personal favorite to win.
