2019 Oscar Award for Best Animated Short Film Goes to ‘Bao’

Up next? The short—yet sweet—animated films.

During tonight’s 91st annual Academy Awards, Bao won the highly coveted Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.

The film beat out a slew of worthy nominees, including Animal Behaviour, Late Afternoon, One Small Step and Weekends.

The Academy first introduced the Best Animated Short Film category back in 1932, when Walt Disney swept the genre. No, really. Not only did he win the award eight years in a row, but he also holds the record for most wins (15) and nominations (49).

Other winners include Dear Basketball, Piper, Bear Story, Feast, Mr. Hublot, Paperman and The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.

Now that deserves a standing ovation.
