AIFF 2013: Best Animation Winner Mr. Hublot Also Gets Academy Award

The timing of this post shows you how much my life has been interfering with my blogging.  The Oscars were announced two weeks ago, but I'm only getting this up now.

There's no question that visually and technically, this short animation is perfect.  But I was taken by a couple of other short animated films in the Anchorage festival that showed more originality.  Animation Hotline and The Rose of Turaida both had great unusual visuals and interesting content.  I wrote about the whole program - albeit briefly - here.  But there are some visuals from them.

I guess I shouldn't feel too bad about my tardiness.  Mr. Hublot's website lists the AIFF win, but only says Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Short.

I do understand how keeping up with all your digital media isn't easy, but I think if I'd won the Academy Award, I'd have gotten that up on my main website.
