Oscar Nominated Film "French Roast" *crickets*

French-roastYeah, yeah, so everyone's arguing about what won this year's Best Picture Oscar and it's just "'Avatar' was robbed" and "'Hurt Locker' rules" all over the place. Personally, I'm more upset that "French Roast" was beat out by "Logorama." 

Hey, where's everybody going?

Who pays attention to the short film categories anyway? They're usually movies you've never heard of and probably will never see. Plus, everyone knows that's when you go to the bathroom, or pour another drink, or download some apps onto your iPhone.

But these are my favorite categories because that's when you discover movies like Fabrice O. Joubert's "French Roast," nominated for Best Animated Short Film. It's about a man in a cafe who suddenly realizes he's forgotten his wallet, and how his day unfolds from there. No blue people or bombs, but it's a sweet little eight minutes. Next time, go to the bathroom when they're announcing nominees for Best Sound.
