So the awards are valuable. That doesn't change the fact that most viewers don't have an easy way to view the shorts beforehand. It's too late for "beforehand," but BuzzFeed helped remind us that all five of the animated shorts, including the winner, Logorama, are now online. Now you can go back and see if you agree with the Academy voters -- and watch five amusing cartoons in the process. (There's a Wallace & Gromit in there!)
Once you've seen them, let us know: Which one would you have voted for? Did the right short win? And wouldn't it be great if all the nominees were this easily available in advance, so we could play along at home?
Check them out after the jump.
