The 2013 Oscars are over. The press has critiqued Seth MacFalane’s performance as host, and over 100,000 people have watched Jennifer Lawrence on YouTube as she trips on her dress while climbing the stairs to receive her award. But what’s really worth review is the short film Fresh Guacamole, which was nominated for Best Animated Short.
At just 1 minute and 40 seconds long, Fresh Guacamole is the shortest film to have ever achieved an Oscar nomination. We showed it at Mountainfilm in Telluride in 2012, and although it didn’t win an Academy Award for its stop motion animation, the film, which reveals the making of a bowl of guacamole without any food ingredients, is well worth 100 seconds of your appreciation.
