THIS won the Academy Award?!
11 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A Greek TRAGEDY is one of the more unusual winners of the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film--partly because it seemed so ordinary and partly because a ground-breaking film (LUXO, JR.) didn't. LUXO, JR. is a very simple film by the standards of today, but it was one of the first short released by Pixar Films and opened up a Pandora's Box of CG animation. Because it was so important (and fun to watch), it is amazing that it was only nominated.

As for A Greek TRAGEDY, the story is told through more traditional hand-drawn animation. And as for the quality of this animation, it's okay, but not what you'd expect for an Oscar winner. I'd like to say that at least it had a good story, but frankly it was only okay as well. So I am left asking myself "why"--why did this ordinary film win? I wish I knew. Perhaps computer generated graphics were just too new to be considered by some to be animation.
