And the Oscar goes to...

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
Is the video not playing? Click here
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore for Best Animated Short. Not a single spoken word is uttered, but thousands of hand-painted books were created for William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg’s film. Play the trailer above or better yet -- view the complete 15 minute movie on YouTube. Then decide if it depicts "the curative powers of story" (according to the filmmakers) or "a dire warning against the fetishization of books" (see New Yorker article). Photo & Film: Moonbot Studios
