It happens every year around Oscar time. You’ve seen every major movie that’s on the ballot at a theater near you. You’ve read every review from every major critic. You get all the way through the nominations and for once, you think you’re going to dominate the betting pool, until the evening gets to the shorts category. But this year, you’ve got an ace up your sleeves. The Magnolia at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (3200 Darnell St., Fort Worth) will screen all of the Oscar-nominated short films in both the live and animated category. Screenings are scheduled at 6 and 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17; 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18; and 12, 2 and 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19. Tickets ($9 per person, $7 for museum members and $6 for “Reel People” members) go on sale at the box office two hours before each scheduled screening. Visit themodern.org for more info.
