Oscar Fever!

Billy's Balloon

This is what I’ll be wearing to the Academy Awards. Or at least what I’ll be wearing as I sit on my couch watching it on TV, since Leo withdrew his offer to have me as his plus-one.

Don Hertzfeldt’s World of Tomorrow is up for Best Animated Short and seems to be a front-runner for the win. I loved World of Tomorrow, and also Rejected, Wisdom Teeth, and several of his other shorts, but Billy’s Balloon may be best dark comedy I’ve ever seen.
