Cartoon Break: Here's Disney's Oscar Nominated Animated Short 'Paperman.' Now Go See the Others.

It's the smaller categories that excite me most during the Academy Awards, and the animated shorts have a special place in my heart. The Magnolia is currently showing both the five Oscar contenders -- including Disney's darn-charming contribution "Paperman" shown above -- and five great runners-up. (My favorite is a little art-centered quickie called "Dripped.")

Give younger-you a reason to be proud of older-you; spend an hour and a half of your weekend watching cartoons while drinking. I mean, the Simpsons have a nomination -- that alone should be worth your ticket. They show on Friday at 7:45 p.m.
