The Academy Award for Animated Shorts. One of my favorite categories. Recently, it occurred to me that there were dozens of Oscar winners I had yet to see. I decided to go on a search for all them. The result was an incredible journey from 1932 to 2013. In this 9 part series, I count down every single animated short film that won the Oscar. Where do your favorites rank?
