Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane might be hosting this Sunday’s Academy Awards, but his rival cartoon is actually up for an Oscar. The Longest Daycare, the Simpsons-inspired short film starring Maggie Simpson that played in front of this summer’s Ice Age: Continental Drift, is one of the nominees for Best Animated Short. We’ve already seen a short trailer for the film, but it’s now online in its entirety.
Thanks to Vulture for the heads up.
With Maggie Simpsons vs. Disney’s Paperman, Best Animated Short has a few major contendors this year. Should be a fun category. What did you think of The Longest Daycare? Can it win?
(Also, to be fair to Seth McFarlane, his film Ted is nominated for an Oscar: Best Original Song. It’s not like he got shut out.)
