“All five nominees are strong, and at least one is an instant classic, destined to be loved and shared for decades to come. The selection is substantial enough that ShortsTV – the company that packages the finalists for theatrical release each year – didn’t need flesh it out with bonus offerings. There’s not a rotten toon in the bunch.” – Variety
