The Academy Awards have become an incredible production, with week-long prognostications about which film will get Best Picture, who will get Best Director and so on. But sometimes the most enjoyable films are also the most fringe, the ones relegated to the “Short Film” category. Fortunately, Magnolia Home Entertainment has recognized this, as it’s preparing to release a complete DVD featuring nothing but the 2007 Academy Award Nominated Shorts. And we’ve partnered with Magnolia Home Entertainment to give each of five lucky readers one of these DVDs.
To win one of these five free DVDs, simply complete and submit the entry form below through the deadline of 11:59pm PST on May 23, 2008.
