I managed to see all 5 nominees. First time this happened in this category. Barely a spoken word of dialogue in any of them. My personal rankings:

01. Head Over Heels
02. Adam & Dog
03. Paperman
04. Fresh Guacamole
05. Maggie Simpson in 'The Longest Daycare'

These are all strong entries, IMO and I wouldn't be mad if any of them won. As far as who WILL win, well, Fresh Guacamole is short and fun and very Svankmajer-esque but I doubt a lot of people will be checking that off and the Simpsons short seems a bit slight when compared to the others so I think it's a three-way race between the three love stories: Head Over Heels, Adam & Dog and Paperman. My personal vote goes to Head Over Heels.

Oktapodi was 2 minutes...it was nominated a couple of years ago.

See them all here.

All the links work for me except the Simpsons short.

At under 2 minutes, I think Fresh Guacamole might be the shortest film ever to get an Oscar nomination. Anyone can confirm that?
