Watch the Oscar-Nominated Short 'Henry', Before You're Too Old To Even Grasp It


The Academy Award for Best Short Film (Live Action)--typically the point in the ceremony where you zone out to consider what such a gathering of celebrities and filmmakers must smell like--can this year be the point where you impress everyone at your Oscar party by saying, "Hey, I watched one of these!

Happy Presidents' Day!
