Will Win: Feast
Could Win: Me and My Moulton
The Disney short seems like the easy choice to win, but it gets a little more complicated than that. Disney lost in this category the last time it was nominated and hasn’t won the short subject category since 2012. Me and My Moulton creator Torill Kove has won one Oscar before, for her short The Danish Poet. All this said, Kove has a good shot here, but I think that Feast, armed with the cutest animated dog you’ve ever seen, will take this one.
