Frozen won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature at the 2014 Academy Awards, which came as no surprise, but in the category of Best Animated Short the victor, which seemed to blow people’s minds, was a quirky short called Mr. Hublot.
Mr. Hublot ran up against Get A Horse!, a new Mickey Mouse cartoon drawn in the old noodle limbed style of the original Steamboat Willie cartoons; Feral, which was lauded and applauded by the animation community as a whole leading up to the awards ceremony; Room on a Broom, which is an adaptation of the children's book with the same name; and Possessions by Shuhei Morita, which is his first Academy Award nomination and part of the Short Peace film omnibus.
If you enjoyed Mr. Hublot you can check out some concept art and an interview with the creators Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares here.
