    Our new contributor at Gold Derby, Jack Mathews, is the dean of Oscarologists. He’s been covering the kudos for nearly 4 decades as the former film editor/ critic of the L.A. Times, New York Daily News and USA Today. He knows these awards and their quirks better than anybody — and now he offers you his inside peek at those categories that always cause you to lose your office Oscar pool — animated short, documentary short, live action short, etc.

    There was a interesting article in the N.Y. Times about The Dam Keeper. The article came out a few weeks ago. Wish I could remember the exact date. The article said the filmmakers were well regarded In the industry. I believe they left Pixar to form there own company.

    Okay, I couldn’t find another thread for shorts so I’m going to post my thought here. I just finished watching all the documentary shorts. I think pundits are sleeping on THE REAPER. All the experts and editors here have it at last place. They probably do so because it is, by far, the grittiest (although the scene when we see the baby suffering in OUR CURSE is also a tough sit). However, I found it the best short BY A MILE. If the people voting consider the factors of what makes great cinema, then it has to be THE REAPER vs JOANNA. I don’t think they always vote for the emotional pick.

    The American shorts (CRISIS HOTLINE and WHITE EARTH) are the worst, no doubt. OUR CURSE is ethically questionable IMO.

    I dont get hype about Phone Call. So it has big name actors, big whoop. It is pretty much indistinguishable from the rest of the program. Boogaloo and Graham. Now there is a stand out.
